Culpepper; her daughter, Kathryn Jean Poindexter; her son, John Reid Culpepper; a great-granddaughter, Kathryn Jean Hamilton; siblings, Benjamin L. White, Jr. and Rose Marie Green. Faye dedicated her entire life to serving her family, and always placed others needs before her own. She was tirelessly devoted to raising her children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren. She will always be remembered for her strength, tenacity and kind loving heart.

Survivors include her sons, Gordon L. "Whitey" Culpepper (Rebecca), Robert G. Culpepper (Whitney); grandsons, Ronald L. Culpepper (Deidra), William Reid Culpepper (Tracy), Michael Shawn Fitzgerald (Lori), Vernon James Poindexter (Hannah), Brandon Lewis, John Reid Culpepper, Jr. (Alena), Patrick Bell Culpepper (Marissa), Mervin Ryan Culpepper (Danielle); as well as many beloved great-grandchildren and great-great grandchildren.

Due to public health safety requirements, the service will be private. Interment will be in Riverside Memorial Park, Norfolk.

The family would like to especially thank Dr. Zattam Musslemani for the exceptional, compassionate care over the many years, and the listening ear, as she held him over for special conversations and offered him advice and guidance on a regular basis. We would also like to thank the physicians and entire care team and support staff at Chesapeake Regional Medical Center for their excellent care.

In lieu of flowers, the family requests memorial contributions to Meals on Wheels of Chesapeake.
