Whereas, the members of the South Carolina General Assembly were saddened to learn of the death of Agnes Louise Aycock Love at the age of seventy-six on Wednesday, February 8, 2023; and
Whereas, born in Rock Hill on June 22, 1946, she was the daughter of the late John McIlwaine Aycock and Louise Kirkpatrick Aycock and was a 1964 honor graduate of Rock Hill High School. She earned a bachelor's degree in both mathematics and English and a master's degree in education from then Winthrop College; and
Whereas, Mrs. Love enjoyed a thirty-five-year career as a professional educator, teaching middle school math in Rock Hill and high school math in Chester, and she served as the faculty sponsor of the Beta Club for many years. She ended her teaching career as the director of secondary education for Chester County; and
Whereas, a lifelong and faithful member of Olivet Presbyterian Church, she served for forty-two years as a Sunday school teacher in the church; and
Whereas, during her retirement, Mrs. Love was an active volunteer with the York County Genealogical and Historical Society, serving as its president from 2018 to 2022, and was elected to serve as vice president in 2023. She was a longtime coordinator of the Society's publication, the Quarterly, and a frequent contributor; and
Whereas, she was a member of the Gamma Chapter of Delta Kappa Gamma, a group devoted to promoting professional and personal growth of women educators and excellence in education. She frequently hosted group events and meetings for the Gamma Chapter in her home; and
Whereas, together with her beloved husband, the late James Frazier "Jim" Love, she reared two fine children, Agnes Ann Love Feemster and James Frazier Love III. She was blessed to have the affection of five adoring grandchildren: Sam, Ryn, Meg, Mary Morgan, and Jay; and
Whereas, her husband was serving as mayor of McConnells when he passed away in 2019. After his death, Mrs. Love stepped in to fill the vacancy and subsequently was elected for two terms in this capacity; and
Whereas, during her tenure as mayor, the Town of McConnells received several grants and gifts to revitalize the town's community center and surrounding grounds, as well as the Town Hall. She was instrumental in establishing better internet capabilities and options for the town. In her final days, she was hard at work to place emergency management services within the town limits; and
Whereas, the members of the South Carolina General Assembly are grateful for the life and legacy of Agnes Love and for the example of service and faithfulness she set for all who knew her. Now, therefore,
Be it resolved by the Senate, the House of Representatives concurring:
That the members of the South Carolina General Assembly, by this resolution, express their profound sorrow upon the passing of Agnes Louise Aycock Love of York County and extend their deepest sympathy to her large and loving family and her many friends.
