    My Aunt Jane,

    Is there anything more special than being chosen? I think not. Why you chose such a precocious head strong teen to mentor I will never know. You said call you Aunt Jane, but you became my grandmother and I’m so grateful you adopted me. After all our time together I now find myself a vegan, with a garden for vegetables and one for butterflies, using native plants and planting them asymmetrically bc thus is nature. I will continue the tradition of adopting the sea turtle nests. Thank you for giving me a voice and believing in me. For giving me the grace and autonomy to work out life’s quandaries. Thank you for not forgetting me when your spirit moved on. I love you, see you soon

    Jane Culpepper was a Distinguished member of The Garden Club at Palm Coast for many decades. She was an environmentalist and avid gardener and taught many of us about native plants and their habitats. She supported the club's scholarship programs and our giving tree at Christmas. When the club needed something Jane always offered her financial support.
    She also donated her time and knowledge to many charitable organizations in Palm Coast and was active in local governments such as the City of Palm Coast and Flagler County. The butterfly garden behind the Flagler Palm Coast Library was established by Jane and a coquina mark honors her. In April the garden club will plant a tree in memory of members who have passed in 2021 and Jane will be added to the plaque.
    She will be thoroughly missed. I am so glad I called her in September to hear her voice one last time. Rest in Peace, Jane

    Jane, you were (forever will be) my hero. I often told you what an inspiration you were. You were humble, but I persisted, and I'm glad I did. My highlight of your epic philanthropy was toward the premier Northeast Florida Veg Fest. You helped make it possible. Bless your generous spirit and tireless advocacy for nature and animals. You knew we were all connected. You leave a bright path and shining example to follow. And although the good you did will reverberate forever, we'll still miss you terribly. What a legacy, and thank you for it.

    Aunt Jane, you were our wonderful neighbor for over 25 years. Thank you for teaching my family and me about the environment, Florida’s natural plants and your love for animals. It meant so much to Kelly when you took her under your wing in her high school years. She enjoyed walking the dogs with you so much. You will be greatly missed by our family!

    Jane was our wonderful neighbor for over 25 years. She taught us so much about native plants. My husband, Donnie kept her stocked with our leaves every fall that she used for mulch. Our daughter, Kelly, used to go on dog walks with Jane when she was in high school. They became great friends and she taught Kelly so much about her love of animals and the environment. She will be very much missed by our family. We love you, Aunt Jane!
