Obituary*say 26 Nov 2014 TIFTON — Margaret Culpepper “Tunkey” Bergeron, 91, of Tifton died Tuesday, Nov. 25, 2014, at her residence. Funeral services will be held at 3 p.m. Friday in the chapel of Albritton Funeral Directors with the Rev. Benjy Varnell and the Rev. Jay Roberson officiating. Interment will follow at Oakridge Cemetery.
The family will receive friends from 1 to 2:45 p.m. Friday before the service at the funeral home. Active pallbearers are Bill Vance, Harvey Hatcher, Walter Stephens, Cecil Hutchinson, Matt Rhodes, J.H. White, Richard Burton and Jimmy Deal. The Christian Covenant Sunday school class will serve as honorary pallbearers.
Margaret, known to her family and friends as Tunkey, was born Oct. 28, 1923 in Cordele to the late C.B. (Boozer) and Ethel Smith Culpepper. She was preceded in death by her beloved husband, Robert (Bob) Eldridge Bergeron, who died in 2005; and her sisters, Susie Culpepper Huff and Marion Culpepper Whiddon.
Tunkey moved to Tifton in 1927 when she was four years old. She attended the Tifton schools and graduated with the class of 1940 from Tifton High School. After graduation, she attended Valdosta State College for Women and graduated in 1944 with a degree in elementary education.
Tunkey began her 30-year teaching career in Tifton. On Nov. 1, 1952, she married Bob, her husband of 53 years, whom she met in first grade. During that time, she continued her teaching career in Tifton, Valdosta, Albany and Anchorage, Alaska, following Bob from base to base as his career in the Air Force required. In 1964, Bob retired from the military and they settled back in Tifton.
Tunkey taught at Spencer Elementary until her retirement in 1980. Because she had no children of her own, she loved each and every student as they belonged to her. When she retired, she loved telling stories of her many years in the classroom and seeing her former students. After her retirement, she became very active in her church and community. For 25 years, she delivered Meals on Wheels and served as director of eligibility, was on the board of directors and volunteered with Special Olympics, served on the education committee for the 20th Century Woman’s Club and was also a member of the Daughters of the American Revolution, Retired Teachers and Club 55.
Tunkey was a lifelong member of First United Methodist Church of Tifton, a member and for many years president of the Christian Covenant Sunday school class and a teacher and leader of her Circle of United Methodist Women. She was awarded the Georgia A. Wright Memorial Award in 2010 and given special recognition for her work in Special Olympics in 2013.
She is survived by her nieces and nephew, Margaret and Gary Powers of Lilburn, Penny Huff Hawthorne and Libbi Huff of Simpsonville, S.C. and Robert Whiddon of Durham, N.C; and several great- and great-great-nieces and nephews.2

Biography* Known as Slim, he was quite a character and ran away and joined the Navy at age 16.
     At some point, he apparently learned how to fly, and he became a daredevil pilot and was notorious for his stunt flying. He would dive on churches interrupting prayer meetings, buzz outdoor events and fly between the buildings of the women's college in Milledgeville, GA.
     In 1928, Slim married Louise Tisdale, daughter of A. W. Tisdale, who gave them a Waco airplane as a wedding present. Louise and Slim had met when Slim was hired to pilot a plane for Mr. Tisdale. After Slim and Louise married, he taught her how to fly and wing walk and they became part of a flying circus. The planes that they flew in were often literally held together with baling wire and would leak both oil and gas. Once, while Louise was wing walking, the plane's motor died covering the wing she was on with oil but as she lost her footing she was able to grab a guy wire and hold on even though her hand was cut to the bone.
     Slim survived encounters with 400,000 volt power lines, collapsed landing gear and the loss of the tail of a plane he was flying. In 1938, he was pulled out of his last plane crash and hospitalized in Newnan. He was subsequently taken to Piedmont Hospital in Atlanta where he died at age 34.1

Biography* The following article was written by Harold Martin apparently sometime during World War II: When Cotton Patches Were Landing Fields WARNER ROBINS, Ga.--There is a tall, slim, big-eyed blonde down here in the fabric department of the airplane repair shops whom the hottest pilots now in the air could well salute as one of their own daredevil breed. Her name is Louise Tisdale Culpepper and she is the widow of Slim Culpepper, whom old fliers like W. C. Miles, superintendent of the Air Service Command's maintenance department here, remember as the biggest, happiest, wildest flyer who ever broke up a prayer meeting by diving at a church. It was an airplane crash that brought them together, and an airplane crash that finally separated them forever after ten years of hazardous living in which they flew and stunted over every cotton patch in the south. In 1928 Louise's father, A. W. Tisdale, of Milledgeville, who loved airplanes but couldn't fly bought himself an old jenny from Souther Field at Americus. Then he started looking around for a pilot. About the same time Slim Culpepper rammed a Waco through a 400,000 volt power line at Soperton. A man who could do that and live, Mr. Tisdale figured must be a pilot from away back. SLIM TAKES JOB He offered Slim the job. Slim took it. Three months later he took Tisdale's daughter, Louise, too, as his bride, and the happy couple took off in a brand-new Waco that was the wedding gift of Mr. T. Three weeks later the the landing gear failed and they crumpled like an accordion. Then the barnstorming began. Louise learned to fly. She learned to walk wings. They formed, with two other antic airmen named Bonnie Rowe and Curly Burns, a flying circus. It was a hard life. The planes were patched with baling wire. One leaked gas so badly Louise would catch it in a quart fruit jar while in flight and then, while Slim nosed up to keep the propwash from blowing her away, she would pour the gas back in the tank. Frequently things were so bad they slept in the planes, or on the ground in the shelter of the wings. They would work all week to a patch a ship so it would be fit to fly on Saturday and Sunday. It was not unusual that Louise would have to sell a ticket to a passenger for $5 and then rush to town to buy the gas to take him up with. ADVENTUROUS LIFE It was an adventurous life, packed with danger every day. One afternoon in Boaz, Ala., when Louise was walking a wing the motor conked and oil poured back upon the wing. Her new white boots slipped and she fell, clutching at a guy wire with one hand. She grabbed it, but her hand was cut to the bone as she hung on. "I was flapping out over the trailing edge like washing on the line," she said. Once Slim put a powerful Hispano engine in an old plane and blew the tail off of it. The crash buried the nose in the ground and tore the seat out of the passenger's pants. When Louise came to inspect the wreck later a farmer, with shotgun and dogs, demanded $25 for damaging his pasture. She settled for five. Once an oil-spurting motor that that ruined her new silk dress forced them down 10 times on a trip of 100 miles. Slim was always in hot water with staid and sensible folk. He dived on a cornerstone laying at Milledgeville and scattered all the partipants. He loved to swoop down between buildings at the women's college there, bellowing joyful salutations to the startled schoolgirls as he roared past their windows. The young and serious-minded CAA snatched his license and fined him $5,000 for flying without lights at night, for stunting pay passengers and for chimney hopping. He just laughed at the fine and flew without a license. And Louise, loving him despite all his foolishness, flew with him with their daughter Charlene, who made her first flight at the age of six weeks. It was the day that Charlene was to enter school for the first time that Slim died. Late that afternoon he was coming in to land. He looked to be doing all right. Then the ship suddenly went into the ground. When they pulled Slim out he was dead. It was 10 years, almost to the day, since they were married. Louise hasn't flown much since. She'd like to fly again. She'd like very much to become a member of the Army's ferry command of women pilots. But the old days of walking the wings out in the rushing wind, and of riding, hour after hour in open cockpits, took their toll. Under her hair you will see the little black button of a hearing aid. So she's working down here, remembering the old days, and the old daredevil gang, most of whom died like Slim, in some dirt field crash somewhere, their names not even known to the winged youngsters of today who are their spiritual sons.

Biography*  Mrs. Eleanor Culpepper Willingham, in a 27 Mar 1977 letter, wrote that Lydia and Henry Yeargan "live at the g.g. father's [George W. Culpepper] home place [near Lone Oak]. Of course it is not the same house he had but is the same farm." In a 9 Aug 1993 letter, Eleanor added "the house that stands on the place was built by Jas. D. - two rooms log cabins - during the war for the wife of one of the sons." John William Culpepper added in a 16 Aug 1993 letter: George [Washington Culpepper] built a two room log house for his son James Daniel's wife during the Civil War. At the time she had been living near Greenville, Meriwether County. He wanted her to be close to him so he could protect her while James was off fighting. That home I believe was James Daniel's home after the war and he built additions to it. The home is still there....
      John William also mentioned that Lydia was "currently in poor health in a hospital." Lydia and Henry had no children. Lydia died at the age of 81. The following obituary is from p. 9 of the Meriwether Vindicator for 26 Sep 1997: Mrs. Lydia C. Yeargan Mrs. Lydia Culpepper Yeargan, 81, of the Lone Oak Community of Meriwether County, died Friday, September 19, 1997 at Newnan Hospital. Funeral services were conducted Saturday afternoon, September 20 at the graveside in the Allen-Lee Memorial United Methodist Church Cemetery in Lone Oak, with the Reverend Brad Reed and the Reverend Karl Hunter officiating. Mrs. Yeargan was born July 10 1916 in Lone Oak, daughter of the Late Charles S. Culpepper and the late Evie Landrum Culpepper. She lived at Lone Oak most of her life, was a member of Allen-Lee Memorial United Methodist Church, and retired from Newnan Hospital after many years of service. She was the wife of the late Henry W. Yeargan. She is survived by several nieces and nephews. The Claude A. McKibben and Sons Funeral Home of Hogansville was in charge of arrangements. Although Lydia's home was on land in Meriwether Co., GA between Lone Oak and Luthersville originally purchased by George W. Culpepper, her address was: Route 1, Grantville, GA 30220.

Pharmacist 'Whupper' Lee dies

By W. WINSTON SKINNER Assistant News Editor
William F. "Whupper" Lee Sr. , a pharmacist in Newnan for decades, died Friday, and
is remembered for his love of golf and Auburn University. "Whupper - I just didn't know anybody who didn't like ;him," said TimesHerald Sports Editor Emeritus Johnny Brown.

Lee, 87, was a Newnan native. He was born Oct. 1, 1915 to J. Frank Lee and Frances Herring Lee. "He was an old West Washington, Street boy," said lifelong friend Harold Barron.

Barron said his uncle Bill Barron and Lee "were in the same class together." Lee graduated from Newnan High School and proceeded to Auburn University where he was head cheerleader and a member of Sigma Alpha Epsilon Fraternity.

After graduating from Auburn in 1937, Lee returned to Newnan and began working as a pharmacist for his uncle, John Robert King. He later became proprietor of Lee-King Drug Company and continued his work there until he retired at 81.

Lee's pharmacy career was interrupted during World War II when he served as an officer in the U. S. Army.

"Whupper was an artillery officer. Down at Auburn, they had ROTC," Barron recalled.

Golf was a favorite pastime for Lee. "We played golf all our lives together. We played about the same game," Barron said.

In the early 1960s, Barron and Lee started the "Flash-Whup Golf Tournament" at the Newnan Country Club. "It filled a void over the Labor Day weekend," said Brown.

Brown remembered that promoting the tournament required a different, creative picture of Lee and Barron each year. They were always willing to cooperate with the newspaper photographer to get a good shot.

Flash-Whup "got to be one of the most popular tournaments they had," Brown said.

Lee retained a great love for his alma mater all of his life. "Auburn has lost their most staunch supporter," Barron said.

"He was Mr. War Eagle," agreed Brown, who remembered Lee sharing the Auburn cheer on his television program, The Johnny Brown Show, on News Channel 9.

"I had him on my television show several times," Brown said. "He was a colorful character."

Lee had served as president of the Georgia Pharmaceutical Association and the Newnan Rotary Club. He was a member of Central Baptist Church and Newnan Country Club.

For several years after returning from World War II, Lee and Barron led the Baptist Training Union group for boys which met on Sunday evenings at Central Baptist.

At the first meeting, "the big boys just pushed the little kids away from the food," Barron recalled. He and Lee soon brought order to the meetings, and he remembered Lee's "quizzes from the Bible."

Lee was married on Aug. 15, 1940 to Martha Park Culpepper, who came from a prominent Meriwether County family.

Their oldest son, William F. Lee Jr., is a superior court judge for the Coweta Circuit. Robert L. Lee followed his father in the pharmacy business and continues to operate Lee-King's three stores.

Their sister, Martha Lee Child, is a local educator. In addition to his children, Lee is survived by his sister, Ida Lee Ellis, seven grandchildren and two greatgrandchildren.

In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions may be made to Central Baptist Church, P. 0. Box 1221, Newnan, GA 30264.

Visitation will be held today from 6-8 p.m. at McKoon Funeral Home. A graveside service will be held at Oak Hill Cemetery on Sunday at 2 p.m.

"Whupper has been a very; very dear friend of mine all of my life," Barron said.
