10
11   TO   REQUEST   THAT    THE  DEPARTMENT     OF
12   TRANSPORTATION ERECT APPROPRIATE MARKERS OR
13   SIGNS AT THE INTERSECTION OF UNIVERSAL DRIVE
14   AND SUMTER HIGHWAY AND AT THE INTERSECTION OF
15   UNIVERSAL DRIVE AND BURDELL DRIVE, BOTH IN
16   RICHLAND COUNTY, THAT CONTAIN THE WORDS “IN
17   MEMORY OF MARY L. SHIVERS”.
18
19   Whereas, the members of the South Carolina General Assembly
20   were deeply saddened to hear of the death of Mary L. Shivers of
21   Richland County on January 10, 2011, at the venerable age of
22   nearly eighty-three; and
23
24   Whereas, born on March 1, 1928, Mrs. Shivers was the beloved
25   wife of the late Clark Shivers for more than fifty years; and
26
27   Whereas, she graduated from Columbia Beauty School in 1963
28   and was a licensed beautician for nearly half a century, as well as a
29   caterer; and
30
31   Whereas, believing in caring involvement in her community, she
32   was active with the Capital View Homeowners Association,
33   Eastern Star, Richland County Sheriff’s Department, Lower
34   Richland Ruritan Club, and Red Hat Society; and
35
36   Whereas, a woman of faith, Mary Shivers was a charter member of
37   Temple Baptist Church, where she was leader of the Temple Rays,
38   Bereavement Committee, and Helping Hands Ministries. One of
39   the greatest joys and fulfillments of her life was involvement in the
40   ministry of Camp Longridge to students, and she used the proceeds
41   from her catering to send underprivileged youth to summer camp
42   there; and

 2   Whereas, concern for those less fortunate led her to raise money or
 3   gather food for their benefit. She also visited and fed neighborhood
 4   shut-ins; and
 5
 6   Whereas, Mary Shivers was recognized by her church, her
 7   community, both the South Carolina House of Representatives and
 8   Senate, and Governor Jim Hodges, who in May 2000 awarded her
 9   the Order of the Silver Crescent. The Richland County Council
10   also honored her with a resolution in April 2002; and
11
12   Whereas, an iconic figure in many lives, including that of former
13   South Carolina Representative and present House Reading Clerk
14   James “Bubba” Cromer, to whom she was a longtime friend and
15   second mother, Mrs. Shivers will be remembered with much
16   affection and greatly missed in the community she served and
17   loved for so long; and
18
19   Whereas, it is fitting and proper that appropriate markers or signs
20   be erected along Universal Drive in Richland County as a lasting
21   memorial to her rich legacy. Now, therefore,
22
23   Be it resolved by the House of Representatives, the Senate
24   concurring:
25
26   That the members of the General Assembly, request that the
27   Department of Transportation erect appropriate markers or signs at
28   the intersection of Universal Drive and Sumter Highway and at the
29   intersection of Universal Drive and Burdell Drive, both in
30   Richland County, that contain the words “In Memory of Mary L.
31   Shivers”.
32
33   Be it further resolved that a copy of this resolution be forwarded to
34   the Department of Transportation.
