S. Printed 2/21/13--H.
Read the first time February 19, 2013.
To whom was referred a Concurrent Resolution (S. 251) to request that the Department of Transportation name the portion of Pleasant Lane Road in Edgefield County from its intersection with United States Highway 25, etc., respectfully
That they have duly and carefully considered the same and recommend that the same do pass:
LISTON D. BARFIELD for Committee.
TO REQUEST THAT THE DEPARTMENT OF TRANSPORTATION NAME THE PORTION OF PLEASANT LANE ROAD IN EDGEFIELD COUNTY FROM ITS INTERSECTION WITH UNITED STATES HIGHWAY 25 TO ITS INTERSECTION WITH UNITED STATES HIGHWAY 378 "MAMIE J. REARDEN HIGHWAY" AND ERECT APPROPRIATE MARKERS OR SIGNS ALONG THIS PORTION OF HIGHWAY THAT CONTAIN THE WORDS "MAMIE J. REARDEN HIGHWAY".
Whereas, deeply saddened at the news, the members of the South Carolina General Assembly have learned of the death of Mamie J. Rearden of Edgefield on Wednesday, January 2, 2013, at the venerable age of one hundred fourteen; and
Whereas, while William McKinley was President of the United States, Mamie Rearden entered this world on September 7, 1898. She was raised in her hometown of Edgefield and lived there all her life; and
Whereas, her father sent her off to earn a teaching certificate at Bettis Academy on the far side of the county. She spent an entire day on a loaded wagon to reach the school along dirt roads. Mrs. Rearden taught for several years, but after getting married and starting a family she left teaching to become a homemaker and with her husband, Oacy, raised a fine family of eleven children. Oacy Rearden died in 1979 at the age of eighty-eight after fifty-nine years of marriage to his beloved Mamie; and
Whereas, at the age of sixty-five, Mrs. Rearden obtained her first driver's license and at about the same time became a case worker for an anti-poverty program; and
Whereas, Mamie Rearden, a woman of Christian faith and a member of the Baptist church, lived out her beliefs according to the Golden Rule, "Do unto others as you would have them do unto you;" and
Whereas, at the time of her death, she had the distinction of being the oldest living citizen of the United States. Mrs. Rearden lived in the family homestead with a son and a daughter on land that had been in the family since her father-in-law's accumulation of acreage made him one of the area's largest black landowners; and
Whereas, this cherished matriarch leaves to honor her memory ten surviving children, fifteen grandchildren, ten great-grandchildren, one great-great-grandchild and a host of friends. She will be greatly missed; and
Whereas, it would be fitting and proper to honor her rich legacy by having a highway in Edgefield forever bear her name. Now, therefore,
Be it resolved by the Senate, the House of Representatives concurring:
That the members of the South Carolina General Assembly request that the Department of Transportation name the portion of Pleasant Lane Road in Edgefield County from its intersection with United States Highway 25 to its intersection with United States Highway 378 "Mamie J. Rearden Highway" and erect appropriate markers or signs along this portion of highway that contain the words "Mamie J. Rearden Highway".
Be it further resolved that a copy of this resolution be forwarded to the Department of Transportation.
