Whereas, Dwynelle Pritchard Bennett was born on September 5, 1930 in Warwick, Georgia, one of six children born to James Albert and Ella Elizabeth Pritchard; and
Whereas, in 1948 she met and married Everett Wilson Bennett, and together they raised three children; and
Whereas, the Bennett's moved to St. George in 1955 where they owned and operated Bennett's Appliance Company for forty-two years; and
Whereas, Mrs. Bennett was a member of Memorial Baptist Church where she sang in the church choir, served as a Foreign Mission Study co-chairman, and President of the Appleby Women's Missionary Union; and
Whereas, she is loved by all residents of the St. George area; and
Whereas, it is fitting and proper to permanently recognize the many accomplishments of Mrs. Dwynelle Pritchard Bennett by naming an interchange in the City of St. George in her honor. Now, therefore,
Be it resolved by the House of Representatives, the Senate concurring:
That the members of the General Assembly request that the Department of Transportation name the interchange located at the intersection of United States Highway 78 and United States Highway 15 in the City of St. George the "Nell Bennett Interchange" and erect appropriate markers or signs at this interchange that contain the words "Nell Bennett Interchange".
