Whereas, Mrs. Elizabeth Workman DeVeaux was the loving wife to the late Shellie Clarence DeVeaux; and
Whereas, she was affectionately known as "Mother DeVeaux" to all who knew her; and
Whereas, she was the mother of twelve children, and was a mother figure in the lives of many more children in her community; and
Whereas, Mother DeVeaux accomplished much during her lifetime, which included: being among the first women to receive ordination in the African Methodist Episcopal Church; establishing and founding the Prayer and Bible Church, Inc.; ordaining many Prayer and Bible Church, Inc., ministers; and being a leader in the area of providing kindergarten programs in the Lower Richland area of Richland County; and
Whereas, it would be fitting and proper to forever recognize Mother DeVeaux's commitment to her family and community by naming an intersection in the Lower Richland Community 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 intersection located at the juncture of United States Highway 601 and Reynolds Road in the Town of Eastover in honor of Elizabeth Workman DeVeaux, and erect appropriate signs or markers at this intersection that contain the words "Elizabeth Workman DeVeaux Intersection."
Be it further resolved that a copy of this resolution be forwarded to the Department of Transportation.
