Biography* From p. 421 of History of Arizona, Vol. III, Family and Personal History: RAY CULPEPPER has been associated with the lumber industry throughout his career. He came to Yuma over two decades ago, and is now secretary and manager of Home Lumber and Supply Company. A native of Meridian, Mississippi, he was born on January 30, 1905, son of Elvert M. and M. Carrie (Giles) Culpepper. Both of his parents were born in Mississippi, and his father was a lumberman in that state. Elvert M. Culpepper died in 1941, and his wife in 1950. Completing his public school education at Meridian, Ray Culpepper went to work in the lumber yards there, remaining in his native city until 1928. He then moved to Los Angeles, California, and until 1935 worked in a lumber yard in that city. In 1935 Mr. Culpepper came to Yuma, where he joined the Hayward Lumber and Investment Company. He remained with this organization since and, in 1952, at the time it was sold to new owners, he was appointed secretary and manager, and a member of the board of directors, positions he still holds. The company was renamed House Lumber and Supply Company. Offices and yard are at 37 Third Street, Yuma. Mr. Culpepper's only organizational activity at Yuma is the Chamber of Commerce. At Phoenix, on May 8, 1938, Ray Culpepper married Josephine Boldman. Born in Maricopa County, near Phoenix, on August 27, 1913, she is a daughter of John P. Boldman, now deceased. Mr. and Mrs. Culpepper are the parents of two children: 1. Barbara Ann, who was born in San Diego, California, on August __ 1940. 2. Harold Roy, born at Yuma on February __ 1949.

Obituary*15 May 2002 PHILADELPHIA -- Graveside services for Sara Castle Culpepper Steel will be held Thursday at 3 p.m. at Cedarlawn Cemetery with the Rev. Dr. Dan Howard officiating. McClain-Hays Funeral Home is in charge of arrangements.

Mrs. Steele, 90, of Philadelphia, died Tuesday, May 14, 2002, at Hospice Ministries in Ridgeland. Born in Meridian, Mrs. Steel spent her early life in Meridian surrounded by a large family. She was named after a respected Meridian physician Sara Castle who delivered her. Her father had been a Meridian businessman when the Great Depression hit America hard in the 1920's. Sara and her siblings left school to work and help support the family and erase the debt her father owed. As with most families during this time, much was lost, but a strong moral character and resilience was formed from these difficult times.

She married John Samuel "Sam" Steel Jr. in 1936 and together they moved to Philadelphia in 1944. For many years, they owned and operated Philadelphia Equipment Company, specializing in the sales and service of farm equipment and automobiles. Mrs. Steel worked in the office of the family business during this time.

She is a longtime member of the First Baptist Church, she was a Sunday School teacher of 12 year olds. She was involved in the Philadelphia Band Boosters Parents Organization, the Adam Byrd Literary Society, the C.C. Club, and a member of the Philadelphia Country Club. She was dedicated to various activities of her children, and served in volunteer and chaperone capacities. Her other interests included playing bridge, reading, and playing the piano and organ.

After the death of her husband in 1963, she opened and operated an antique and oriental import gift shop in Philadelphia, continuing her interest in decorative arts. She had rental apartments in her home and made longstanding friends with young people who shared her residence. She was known to everyone as "Miss Sara." Her best friend, Jane Wilbur Cole describes her as "always being cheerful and an inspiration to us all and everyone in Philadelphia loved her."
