to congratulate mrs. orine frazier thompson on the occasion of her ninetieth birthday, and to wish her a joyous birthday celebration and much happiness in the days ahead.


Whereas, on July 13, 2023, Mrs. Orine Frazier Thompson will awaken to the celebration of a milestone event: her ninetieth birthday. Born in Kitchings Mill in 1933 at the height of the Great Depression, she is a lifelong native of Aiken County where she attended public school; and


Whereas, at an early age, she gave her life to Christ and joined Zion Hill Missionary Baptist Church, where she still attends and participates in activities whenever she can. She was a member of the senior choir, and served on the Kitchen and Beautification committees. Her favorite time however was spent on the Home Mission Committee, reaching out to church members and others in the community during their time of need; and


Whereas, in 1955 she was joined in marriage to Mr. James Gerald Thompson, a union which lasted for fifty-six years until his death in 2011. They were blessed with seven children: sons Charles Thompson and Weldon Thompson, both deceased, and daughters Gladys T. Butler, Barbara Thompson-Isom, Vivian T. White, Deborah T. Thomas, and Jean T. Williams. The expanded family now includes sixteen grandchildren, twenty great grandchildren, and two great-great grandchildren; and


Whereas, always one to help others, Mrs. Thompson was active with the March of Dimes in the 1970s while raising seven children and working fulltime. Today, even at her advanced age, her charitable and giving spirit is alive and well as she cooks and bakes, sharing with others who may need a nourishing meal; and


Whereas, it is a great pleasure to honor this daughter of South Carolina at the celebration of her ninetieth birthday and to join with her family and many friends in congratulating her on reaching this important life milestone. Now, therefore,


Be it resolved by the House of Representatives:


That the members of the South Carolina House of Representatives, by this resolution, congratulate Mrs. Orine Frazier Thompson on the occasion of her ninetieth birthday, and wish her a joyous birthday celebration and much happiness in the days ahead.


Be it further resolved that a copy of this resolution be presented to Mrs. Orine Frazier Thompson.
