“So saddened for your loss but realize that now the suffering is over. May she Rest In Peace. ”
1 of 1 | Posted by: Charles Anderson - Mt Pleasant, SC


Kathy Hellmann Glick 73, of Charleston, SC passed away after a very brave six-year battle with Lewy Body Dementia on January 5, 2022. Her private funeral service was held graveside Sunday, January 9, 2022 in Kahal Kadosh Beth Elohim Cemetery. Arrangements by J. Henry Stuhr, Inc. Downtown Chapel.

Kathy was born on September 16, 1948 in Cincinnati, Ohio. She is survived by her husband of 48 years, Myles Ivan Glick and their son, Aaron Alexander Glick, her sisters Vicki Sheldon, Janet Pate (Bill), Lynn Gill (Brian) and her brother Tom Hellmann (Kelly). She is preceded in death by her mother, Lois Marie (Condia) Hellmann and her father, Bernard Henry Hellmann Jr.

Kathy graduated from Mount Notre Dame High School in Cincinnati and attended the University of Cincinnati before moving to South Carolina in 1973. Kathy contributed to the Charleston community through her volunteer work, her love of animals, and her stewardship of the "Porgy House" on Folly Beach, SC. As the first volunteer coordinator for the fledgling South Carolina Aquarium, she was instrumental in coordinating enthusiastic volunteers prior to the groundbreaking of the South Carolina Aquarium. In addition, Kathy also served on the Board of Pet Helpers on James Island, where she championed the Trap Neuter Return Program (TNR). Kathy's ultimate gift to the community was her restoration of the historic Porgy House and sharing the story of Porgy and Bess though her tours to the public. She was a local expert on Dorothy and Dubose Heyward, the authors of Porgy and Bess and enjoyed sharing her passion for the Operetta, written by George and Ira Gershwin and the Heywards. She restored the Porgy and Bess house and opened it for tours to the public in 2011.

In lieu of flowers, the family has requested you consider a donation to The Lewy Body Dementia Association, Pet Helpers, or The Charleston Animal Shelter.
