Obituary*say 11 Dec 2016 Born Martha Blanche Culpepper in Longview, Texas, on July 28, 1919. She passed at 97 years young! We called her "Mudder."

Mother wrote this about her husband (Bob): "My wonderful partner of 57 years (lacking 25 days of 58 years), died April 3, '04." Now, she is happy to be back with her special love. She missed Daddy so.

Don't be sad, because she died. Be happy that she lived and enriched all our lives!

Born in Longview, Texas, a town that our family helped found after moving west from Alabama. She lived in Shreveport, Louisiana, until the family moved to Houston when she was about twelve. She graduated from John H. Reagan High School.

During WWII she worked in the office of a ship building yard. Later she worked as a keypunch operator at Humble Oil until she married Daddy. They met on a blind date which she almost cancelled. She had previously vowed never to date a sailor! The rest is history...

Chosen one of the Top Ten Beauties in Houston! She was beautiful inside & out. Here are some of the comments from the cards we received:

1) Blanche was such an amazing lady and always so positive. I am so grateful that I got to know her.
2) We have so many wonderful memories of Blanche – she always lit up every room she entered.
3) Blanche was an amazing person. She lived life to the fullest – she will be missed.
4) I remember her as such a genteel and gracious woman!
5) Thank you for allowing us to be part of her life. She will always be my pretty li'l lady.

Mother was a testimony to the Culpepper strength, integrity, & longevity - her family traces back to the 900's, earlier, through DNA testing, to the Vikings. Culpepper is a very famous English family name. The Culpeppers helped found the Colonies. She was a member of DAR & UDC.

Mother & Daddy loved to cruise & they shared that love with their granddaughter, Kimberly. For some reason, the two of them wanted to cruise on "The X Boat" (Celebrity), but never made that wish come true. Octavio & Eileen took that cruise for them and drank many a toast in their name.

She is survived by her daughter & son-in-law, Eileen & Octavio Vela, & granddaughter, Kimberly Katherine Vela McCain & her great granddaughter, Zoey Coralyn McCain. Her other daughter & son-in-law are Janet & Monty Powell & their daughters Sandi & Jodi and their children....11

Biography28 Jun 1974 Recently, a tall, stalwart man walked in our store and said to me, "I'm Baylor Culpepper from Shreveport." I said to him, "The only Baylor I ever knew was the late Mr. Baylor Ray." He replied "That man is my namesake."
     Baylor Culpepper has many relatives here in this area. Ora Leggett, Charles and Mary Beth Griffin, Dalton Smith, and all the late uncle Marion Davis' family.
     Baylor Culpepper was born in 1890 near New Hope, the son of Bill and Hannie (Padue) Culpepper. His father died when he was three years old. His mother moved to Claiborne parish. Life was a struggle, he worked hard in his early life. But God has been so good to him. He became a brilliant and very successful real estate dealer.
     Most of all, a true dedicated Christian man. For 50 years he has been a member of the First Baptist Church of Shreveport. Baylor has used his talents in the Lord's service. A man to love and appreciate. I never will forget him after he left my store. He visited New Hope Cemetery where his father was buried 80 years ago. From there he went to Ruston and purchased the finest peaches on earth.
     He said he would return the last of June for more peaches and hoped to see an article I promised to write.
     That's all folks. Why can't we all be like Mr. Baylor, making the world better wherever we go.6 
Death*Jul 1982 He died at Shreveport, Caddo Parish, Louisiana, in Jul 1982 at age 91.1 
Biography* When he signs his World War I draft registration card on 5 June 1917, Baylor Culpepper, age 26, is living in Oil City, Caddo Parish, Louisiana, where he is a rig builder for S.R. Zays & Company. Culpepper, who is single but supports his mother, is 6'2" tall, and slender, with blue eyes and blond hair.

In 1920, twenty-nine-year-old Gladys is living with her husband, oil-field rig-builder Baylor Culpepper in Homer, Claiborne Parish, Louisiana. Living with them are Ernest L. Moody, who shoes horses, and his wife, Ida.

In 1930, Gladys, proprietor of a family hotel, and Baylor Culpepper, a real estate agent, have four boarders: E. M. Ludlow, beauty parlor cosmetician; Bertha Wynne, dry goods saleslady; J. L. Wynne; and C. P. Garret, in Shreveport, Caddo Co., Louisiana. Baylor is a veteran of World War I. (Note: the occupations for Gladys and Baylor may have been reversed in this record; the enumerator started with Gladys, listing her as head of household and Baylor as husband, but crossed out those designations for wife and head, respectively.)
