Edna Delores Culpepper, 70, of Lexington Park died Sept. 28, 2012.

Born Feb. 15, 1942, she was the daughter of Agnes Moreland-Holt and James Norman Holt.

She received her education at Jarboesville High School in Carver Heights, Lexington Park.

She was a fun-loving person and very active until her health declined. She loved to cook and was the “soul food queen,” just ask anyone who was fortunate enough to eat her delicious meals. She enjoyed going to the farmers market, bingo with her friends and yard sales. She liked to watch TV game shows and especially her soaps. She maintained her beautiful home and enjoyed inviting her family and friends over for cookouts.

She was preceded in death by her husband, Richard Culpepper; her parents; brother, James Holt; and brothers-in-law, Robert McLamb and Harris Reed.

She is survived by her daughters, Barbara M. Holt of Lexington Park and Sheila Chase of Baltimore; grandchildren, Shalice Holt and Lamont Culpepper; nine great-grandchildren; sisters, Marie McLamb of Washington, D.C., and Dorothy Reed and Alice Robinson of Lexington Park; brothers, Paul Holt of New Jersey, Francis Holt of Lexington Park and Jimmy Holt of Washington, D.C.; sisters-in-law, Sandra, Clarissa and Florence Holt; brother-in-law, Maurice Robinson; son in-law, Timothy Dotson; friend, Carroll Dyson; and nieces, nephews and a host of other family and friends.

She was a beautiful person and will be missed.

The family will receive friends Thursday, Oct. 4, from 10 a.m. until time of service at 11 a.m. at the Briscoe-Tonic Funeral Home chapel in Mechanicsville. Interment will follow at Charles Memorial Gardens in Leonardtown.
