Flags have been flying at half-staff in the City of Redwood Falls this week following the death of the community’s former mayor, Sara Triplett. She passed away Sunday following a long battle against cancer. Triplett was first elected to the Redwood Falls City Council in the 1980s, and became mayor in 1995. She served 3 terms in that office before retiring in 2007. Triplett was a native of the Garvin area who came to Redwood Falls in 1973. She also served on the Redwood Falls Library Commission, and worked at the town’s clinic for nearly 4 decades.
