Biography* Mrs. John (Dorothy Culpepper) Wingfield preserved a 25 page typed manuscript "ONE FAMILY - CULPEPPER" written by her grandfather, Rev. George Bright Culpepper, which noted: On October 12, 1932, a son was born to Mr. and Mrs. C. F. Culpepper at the home of Mr. and Mrs. J. L. Long, the wife's parents, at 4 o'clock in the afternoon. Dr. J. E. Haslam attended the mother. To this son, one for any parent or grandparent to be proud of, they gave the name Thomas James, for his Uncle Thomas Jackson Culpepper and his grandfather, James L. Long, and great-grandfather, James Marian [Marion] Culpepper. He is almost ten years old and a wonderfully intelligent child. He is in school in Jacksonville. He is a great reader for his age, in this respect following his father's example.

The following is from the Sarasota Herald-Tribune, 25 Dec 1999:

Thomas James Culpepper, 68, Sarasota, died Dec. 23, 1999. He was born Oct. 12, 1931, in Fort Valley, Ga., and came to Sarasota five years ago from Birmingham, Ala. He was a retired regulator program specialist with the federal government. He graduated from Texas A&M University with a doctorate in oceanography. He was an Air Force veteran, serving in the Korean War. He was a member of Faith Lutheran Church, Guadalupe Masonic Lodge No. 109 of Seguin, Texas, and the National Association of Retired Federal Employees. Survivors include his wife, Virginia M; two sons, Frederick Thomas of Sarasota and Robert Matthew of Tampa; and a sister, Dorothy Wingfield of Perry, Ga. Memorial services will be later. Toale Brothers Funeral Home, Gulf Gate Chapel, is in charge. Memorial donations may be made to The Wellness Community, 3900 Clark Road, Building P-3, Sarasota, FL 34233; or to Hospice of Southwest Florida, 5955 Rand Blvd., Sarasota, FL 34238.

Obituary*20 Apr 1994 DEATHS OF NOTE
Culpepper, 82, dies after lifetime of volunteer work.
Olive O'Dell Culpepper, who worked tirelessly for children and youths, died Tuesday at Charleston Area Medical Center's General Division after a short illness. She was 82.

Culpepper, a native of Dana in Kanawha County, was the wife of the Rev. Ross Culpepper, a longtime United Methodist minister, and much of her civic involvement grew out of her church work. She served as secretary of children's work for the state's United Methodists and member of the board of its children's home in Burlington.

She gave much of her time to West Virginia Wesleyan College, which was her alma mater. Culpepper was elected trustee of the Buckhannon school in 1955 and served on the board until 1984. In 1967, she received the school's alumni award, and in 1972 she was awarded a honorary doctor of law degree. In 1982, Wesleyan honored Culpepper twice. She became the first woman ever inducted into the honorary fraternity Omicron Delta Kappa and was named "honorary international ambassador" by Wesleyan's international students.

Culpepper was also active with Girl Scouts. In 1958, she served as vice president of the Kanawha Council of Girl Scouts and served as president of the Mountain Laurel Girl Scout Council from 1961 to 1964 as it grew from five to 22 counties. She served from 1964 to 1972 on the General Board of Missions for the United Methodist Church. Culpepper also was active in a wide range of community civic affairs. They included an interfaith project to buy hospital machines to test babies' hearing, fund-raising to put a chapel at West Virginia Rehabilitation Center and work for the Kanawha County United Fund.

When Culpepper was in her early 50s, she and her husband started a new church, Lakeview United Methodist, in St. Albany after his official retirement from the United Methodist ministry. They started three choirs, a youth fellowship, and Boy Scouts and Girl Scouts troops during their six years there.

Also surviving is a son, Marvin W. Culpepper of Charleston; foster son, Dr. Tae Byung Whang of Penfield, N.Y; four grandchildren; four foster grandchildren; seven great-grandchildren. Service will be 11 a.m. Friday at Christ Church United Methodist with the Rev. Harry Jenkins and the Rev. Aldred Wallace officiating. Burial will be in Sunset Memorial Park, South Charleston. Friends may call from 7 to 9 p.m. Thursday at Wilson Funeral Home, Charleston. The family suggests memorial contributions to Olive Culpepper Scholarship Fund, West Virginia Wesleyan College, Buckhannon, W.Va. 26201.6
