Biography* A brother-in-law, Thomas J. Culpepper, at a 3 Aug 1969 gathering of the Simeon F. Culpepper family noted that Ida had cared for her husband, Edgar C. Culpepper, who was disabled by arthritis and added "I have never understood how she stood the physical strain which she did for 40 years. Although Edgar an Ida had no children, an unknown source noted: The nieces and nephews will always remember the childhood visits they made to stay a few days with Edgar and Ida, who were always so devoted to the children. They all thought that Aunt Ida's cooking was magic.
      Mrs. Eleanor Culpepper Willingham added in "The Sim Culpepper Boys": She [Ida] was a wonderful character and a devoted wife. The children loved her white caramel cake with a pink layer. When Uncle Tom came to visit, one of his boys was hardly out of the car before he would say "Aunt Ida I'm hungry." He knew the favorite cake would be waiting for him.
      The Wesley Culpepper family gave Edgar and Ida a little dog called Rick. An unknown source noted that "the little dog idolized Ida, Edgar's wife. As Edgar could not walk, Rick followed Ida everywhere...."
      At one point, Ida had an ulcerated eye ball removed. The following funeral notice if from an unknown source dated Thursday, 29 Nov 1966: Mrs. E. C. Culpepper Mrs. Edgar C.
