Her daughter Carolyn McCulley confirmed the death.

A spokesman for the Fauquier County sheriff’s office said Mrs. McCulley was driving north on U.S. Route 29 and turned left into the Suffield Meadows retirement community in Warrenton when she was struck by a southbound car. The spokesman said Mrs. McCulley did not yield to traffic.

Early in her career, she was an editor at the Kettering-Oakwood Times in suburban Dayton, Ohio. She settled in Camp Springs in 1964 and moved to Warrenton in 1984. She was a member of St. John the Evangelist Catholic Church in Warrenton.

Survivors include her husband of 51 years, retired Air Force Lt. Col. James A. McCulley of Warrenton; three daughters, Carolyn McCulley of Arlington, Alice Barber of Frisco, Tex., and Elizabeth Oman of Fairfax City; and six grandchildren.
