I visited her at the Bishop gadsden home as a 'guest' of my mother's. They were long term art friends. My mother passed away months before Alicia's passing. I re-visited Alicia to let her know of my mother's passing. She said, "Oh no, not my Charlotte." They had been friends since the 1950's. Alicia was sweet, always happy and stately in her beauty. She was a joy to all.
A sad loss for such a gracious lady. Condolences to the family, may God grant you peace and comfort.
My condolences to the family. Even though Alicia is no longer with us, she is not forgotten. John 5:28
Alicia Rhett was a special lady. I hope that she has taken refuge in the bosom of Abraham. I loved her so much!
May God remember Alicia personally. Malachi 3:16
For God is not unrighteous so as to forget your work and the love you showed for his name by ministering and continuing to minister to the holy ones (Hebrews 6:10). Alicia will never be forgotten for all the work done for the Acting community and especially those encouraged and inspired in this wonderful persons' care. May God continue to strengthen your family in these “times hard to deal with” (2Tim 3:1), especially without a beloved one such as Alicia Rhett.
I am so sorry for your loss. Please take comfort in the Bible at Hosea 13:14. There God says he will redeem their souls from the grave.
Alicia and I worked together at Bradham Advertising in the late 60s. The agency was at 134 Meeting St.in an old building. She would wear her hat and white gloves to work every day. Alicia also did a pastel portrait of both our daughters in the 70s. I was so fortunate to know her.
My condolences to the family. ...
Miss Rhett was a dear family friend and all the female members of the family had the pleasure of sitting for her for our portraits. All in a time that feels long ago when downtown Charleston was quieter and life was a little slower and gracious. Miss Rhett was a sharp, humorous, talented lady and I am so lucky to have known her. We watch Gone With the Wind every year and enjoy her but my memories are more personal and I treasure mama's portrait all the more now as well as mine.
My deepest sympathy goes out to family and friends during this sad time.
Ms Rhett was gracious I met her in 1972 hen she did my portrait.
Blessings to her family who will continue to have wonderful memories of her in whic they can share with others.
SO SORRY FOR THE LOSS,PLEASE ACCEPT MY CONDOLENCE....MAY GOD BE A REFUGE FOR YOU........
Most visitors here apparently don't know that the always beautiful and graceful Alicia Rhett never married and lived with her mother on Tradd Street in downtown Charleston until moving to the Bishop Gadsden Home.
She was as pretty at age 95 as she was in Gone with the Wind, age 18.
She lived on Tradd St. three doors east of Pete & Harry's Grocery that was on the corner of Meeting St.
Like any good Charlestonian, she never painted her stucco house, which maintained its original, very old, slightly pink color -- untouched by modern hands.
And like any good member of St. Philips Episcopal Church, she'll be buried there -- a very small and ancient cemetery worth visiting.
Like my father (also buried there), many good Charlestonians had Alicia paint or draw portraits of at least one family member -- considered treasures.
She famously drove her maroon Ford Fairlane v e r y s l o w l y, and famously posted next to her garage door a sign uncannily resembling an official City of Charleston "Streets & Sidewalks" sign -- "Don't even THINK of parking here" -- that hundreds of Charlestonians have since copied. She did not lack a sense of humor.
I grew up around the corner from Miss Rhett, who was always kind to me, and in her old age, at the Bishop Gadsden Home, always smiled and greeted me with great courtesy as do all the grand ladies of her era -- the depression era, when Charleston was down and out. She also knew hard times.
And I too, named my daughter Alicia.
I will miss this lady who was beautiful in many, many ways.

To a beautiful lady, rest in peace.
To the family of Miss Rhett, my sincere thoughts and prayers. She was such an interesting person. I didn't know her very well as I only saw her once or twice a year when I helped her with her tax returns. She had such a calming presence. Her house was very interesting too and she showed me alot of the portraits she had created. This southern belle will be missed.
May God grant the family and friends strength beyond what's normal to cope with the loss of their loved one - 2 Corinthians 4:7.
I would like to offer my sincere condolences to the Rhett Family for your loss. Alicia's beauty and talent as she was in the prime of her life live on as the classic “Gone with the Wind” is still enjoyed to this day. May you take comfort in the promise of God that grief and sighing will flee away as youthful vigor is restored to all who have passed on-Job 33:25.
Condolences to Ms. Alicia Rhett's family,
Please draw comfort in knowing that your dear one is in a deep sleep and not suffering. Those in God's memory will be awakened - not ill or impaired, but in sound health. Allow God's word, cited in many of the comments in this guest book, give you further comfort during these very difficult days.
I loved that movie....very talented people. This is a tragedy for losing the last cast of that time.
The span of our life is 70 years, or 80. Alicia has shown extra mightiness. May you find comfort in loving memories of her. Psalms 90:10
I am sorry for your loss. May you find comfort drawing close to god & his commandments in this time of sorrow. -1John 5:3
May your hearts soon be filled with wonderful memories of joyful times together as you celebrate a life well lived.
I loved the movie gone with the wind. She was such a wonderful actress.She will be missed dearly. You and your family are in my prayers
What a wonderful lady! God has taken a new angel in heaven, god bless you and your family at this sad time.
To Alicia Rhett,
You were a very talented actress. I loved watching you in the movie Gone with the Wind. My prayers go to you and your family. Lisa Weiner
A beautiful lady ensconced in our memories forever through her work in a classic, never to be forgotten film. Thank you for your talent and contribution to America's film classics.
May God bless you and your family in this time of sorrow.
I was named after Ms. Rhett at a time when the name "Alicia" was not popular and virtually unheard of in the Midwest. My mother loved the movie and particularly the character and Ms. Rhett's beauty. It seems she had a long, enjoyable and productive life. May she rest in peace.
To a Gentle Lady, thank you for your contribution to our movie heritage. R.I.P.
Deepest sympathies to the Rhett Family. Ms. Rhett was a wonderful actress and artist and will be missed.
I would like to offer my sincere condolences to the family. Please know from (Psalms 90:10) that because of special mightiness from God Alicia lived a long life. Cherish the memories that you have of her close to your hearts & minds and let the comfort of God be with you all.
She was so blessed to be a part of the "Gone With the Wind" movie. I have watched it many times!
May all who came to know her be comforted from her memories and legacy. And may the God of all Comfort be with you at this time.
To the family of Ms. Rhett: Who could ever say anything except wonderful things about an actress who co-starred in such a great movie. All of the actors and actresses in Gone With The Wind were fabulous. I am sure that her family was proud of her accomplishments. May she rest in peace.
Rest in peace, Ms. Rhett.
She was a very sweet lady and will be missed
