REQUESTING THE DEPARTMENT OF TRANSPORTATION TO NAME THE BRIDGE OVER THE REEDY RIVER ON LOG SHOALS ROAD, BETWEEN NEELEY FERRY ROAD AND FORK SHOALS ROAD IN GREENVILLE COUNTY, IN HONOR OF W. M. AND MABEL RIDDLE AND TO ERECT APPROPRIATE MARKERS OR SIGNS TO THAT EFFECT.
Whereas, W. M. and Mabel Riddle were married in 1936 and purchased fifty-two acres of land at the corner of Fork Shoals Road and Log Shoals Road; and
Whereas, the Riddles built their family home, raised their two daughters, and lived their entire married lives on that site, less than a mile from the bridge over the Reedy River; and
Whereas, Mr. Riddle, with the help and support of his wife, established Southern Pride Dairy, farmed, operated a sawmill and built a small corner grocery store; and
Whereas, Mr. and Mrs. Riddle, devoted to their church, were most kind and very generous to the families that helped work their land, providing meals and tenant housing, and they treated neighbors and others in the community with equal generosity, providing assistance with medical and educational expenses, interest-free loans, and in-kind assistance on many occasions; and
Whereas, it is proper and fitting to name the bridge over the Reedy River on Log Shoals Road after the Riddles, both now deceased, who were pillars of the community and who contributed in countless ways to better the lives and welfare of their neighbors and community. Now, therefore,
Be it resolved by the House of Representatives, the Senate concurring:
That the General Assembly, by this resolution, requests the Department of Transportation to name the bridge over the Reedy River on Log Shoals Road, between Neeley Ferry Road and Fork Shoals Road, in honor of W. M. and Mabel Riddle and to erect appropriate markers or signs reflecting this designation.
Be it further resolved that a copy of this resolution be forwarded to the family of W. M. and Mabel Riddle, in care of Mrs. Dorothea Thomasson, 430 Log Shoals Road, Greenville, South Carolina 29607.
