Rita Hollings ISLE OF PALMS - Rita Liddy (Peatsy) Hollings, the wife of former U.S. Senator Ernest F. Hollings and former teacher, died Sunday after an eight year battle with Alzheimer's. She was 77. Peatsy, her childhood nickname, was born Rita Louise Liddy in Charleston in 1935 to Thomas J. Liddy and Louise Molony Liddy. She attended Charleston County Public Schools and was a graduate of the College of Charleston, where she studied history.

She also received a graduate degree in History from the University of South Carolina. She taught history and government at Saint Andrews Parish High School for nine years and took an active role in government well before her marriage to Mr. Hollings. From 1964 to 1966, she chaired the Charleston County Democratic Party. In 1971, she married Mr. Hollings. Peatsy, known for her outgoing, straight-forward, dynamic personality, volunteered for countless organizations.

 Among her most rewarding achievements was being appointed by President George H.W. Bush for a four year tenure on the 12-member National Advisory Mental Health Council at the National Institute of Mental Health. She was Chairman of the Ford's Theater and  also served as the National Campaign Chair for the Campaign for the College of Charleston. In this role, she helped raise $45 million to further the educational goals and ensure the future of her alma mater. In honor of her service, in 2003, the College of Charleston dedicated the Rita Liddy Hollings Science Center.

 In addition to serving tirelessly in the Senate Wives Club and as a Red Cross Lady, she also served on the Hollings Cancer Center Board of Directors and the Board of Directors of the SC Aquarium.

 She is survived by her husband of 41 years, retired U.S. Senator Ernest F. (Fritz) Hollings, her sister Katherine (Kay) Liddy Baldwin and her husband Claude Baldwin of West Ashley. Step children: Michael Hollings (Deborah); Helen Reardon (John); Ernest F. (Fritzie) Hollings Jr., along with seven grandchildren. Nephews: Julian (Jay) Baldwin IV(Ann); James Baldwin; Thomas Baldwin and Michael Baldwin (Katherine). She is also survived by her Aunt, Jessie T. Liddy.

A Mass of Christian Burial will be celebrated at 11:00 AM Wednesday, October 17, 2012, at Stella Maris Catholic Church, 1204 Middle St. Sullivan's Island.

Katherine Liddy Baldwin CHARLESTON - Katherine Liddy Baldwin, 76, of Charleston, South Carolina, took her final bow to a standing ovation by family and friends on Tuesday, December 30, 2014, after an extended illness with Alzheimer's.


The relatives and friends of Mr. and Mrs. Claude Baldwin III are invited to attend her Mass of Christian Burial at 10:00 AM, Monday, January 5, 2015, at Blessed Sacrament Catholic Church. The Rite of Committal will be at Holy Cross Cemetery. The family will receive friends this Sunday between 5:00 and 7:00 PM at the James A. McAlister Funeral Home, 1620 Savannah Hwy. Her guestbook may be signed at www.JamesAMcAlister.com.



Kay was one of the stars of more than twenty of Traynor Ferillo's annual productions of the "Charleston Fun Show," presented at the Dock Street Theatre. Undoubtedly, Kay is proudly auditioning with others in Heaven for an everlasting production of peace and joy. Kay was a graduate of St. Andrew's Parish High School, Class of 1956.



Following high school, Kay attended the College of Charleston, where she was a member of Chi Omega sorority, as well as first runner-up for Miss College of Charleston. Kay was also a lifelong member of Blessed Sacrament Catholic Church, of which her parents were charter members. Kay carried on her parents' dedication to Blessed Sacrament Church by being one of the original volunteers in a weekly time slot at the Perpetual Adoration Chapel and continuing her weekly commitment for twenty years.


Kay was an avid fan of football, of all levels, cheering louder than anyone for the Alabama Crimson Tide and the Carolina Panthers. Kay never missed a Citadel football game, faithfully attending both home and away games, to cheer for her husband's alma mater. She may have even been the most excited fan when the The Citadel beat USC in 1990, as she was so overcome with joy that she whirled around and picked up General Grimsley in celebration.


Kay also attended eight Super Bowls, delighted to witness in person what the whole world was watching on T.V. Although Kay enjoyed many interests and played many roles in her lifetime, the roles for which Kay will be most remembered are those of loving wife of Claude Baldwin, III, devoted mother of five boys, and fun-loving grandmother of seven grandchildren.


To her family, she will forever be a star. Kay was predeceased by her parents, Thomas J. and Louise Molony Liddy, and her sister, Rita (Peatsy) Liddy Hollings.



Surviving Kay are her husband of 53 years, Claude Baldwin, III; their five sons: Julian (Ann), Claude IV (Lucy), James, Thomas, and Michael (Katherine); and their seven grandchildren: James, Hannah, Julian, Cullen, Claude V, Anna Katherine, and Tyler.
