TO REQUEST THE DEPARTMENT OF TRANSPORTATION NAME THE ENTIRE LENGTH OF QUAKER ROAD IN DORCHESTER COUNTY "JACK AND EMMA LEE GRUBER MEMORIAL HIGHWAY" AND ERECT APPROPRIATE MARKERS OR SIGNS ALONG THIS HIGHWAY CONTAINING THESE WORDS.
Whereas, Owen C. "Jack" and Emma Lee Walters Gruber lived as husband and wife spending the better part of seventy years along Quaker Road in Dorchester County; and
Whereas, while Jack departed his earthly life in 2007 and Emma Lee departed her earthly life in 2021, together they built a farm consisting of six hundred acres around their home, raised five children, and worked at their family business, St. George Farm Equipment; and
Whereas, Mr. and Mrs. Gruber were active members of St. Matthews Baptist Church and their community; and
Whereas, it would be fitting and proper to recognize Jack and Emma Lee Gruber's legacy by naming a road in Dorchester County in their honor. Now, therefore,
Be it resolved by the Senate, the House of Representatives concurring:
That the members of the General Assembly request the Department of Transportation name the entire length of Quaker Road in Dorchester County "Jack and Emma Lee Gruber Memorial Highway" and erect appropriate markers or signs along this highway containing these words.
Be it further resolved that a copy of this resolution be forwarded to the Department of Transportation.
