Lochie Fay Hart

Lochie Fay Hart, 86, of Nashville, Tennessee, formerly of Murray, Kentucky, died Friday, July 3, 2020, at Brookdale Senior Living in Belle Meade, Tennessee.

She was born Dec. 25, 1933, in Murray, Kentucky, to George S. Hart and Lochie Broach Hart.

She retired from the public relations department of Time Warner Cable in Murray, and was a member of First Christian Church. 

Lochie was a lifelong resident of Murray and even though she was able to travel extensively, her heart and home was always in Murray. She enjoyed life to the fullest and was surrounded and blessed with many close friends. She was an active participant in many civic organizations and maintained a close watch over her beloved Murray State campus. She shared her father’s interest in politics and remained active in the Democratic Party for many years. She represented Kentucky as a delegate to the Democratic National Convention on several occasions. Lochie was blessed with a vivacious personality and always made people around her laugh, and made friends wherever she went. She was a master grammarian and never hesitated to correct improper use of the English language. She was a dedicated mother first and foremost; she treasured her children and embraced every moment with them. She especially loved her role as grandmother and great-grandmother, where she was known by the name “Gahging”. 

In addition to her parents, she was preceded in death by one daughter, Lore Broach Landolt. 

Lochie is survived by her daughter, Deborah Schwinn Fitzgerald of Vermillion, Ohio; her son, George Hart Landolt of Nashville, Tennessee; five grandchildren, Whitney Landolt Kelley, Sarah Hart Landolt, Lochie Elizabeth Landolt, Ashley Schwinn and Adam Schwinn; and three great-grandchildren, Annalise Lochie Walker, Maxwell Mark Kelley and Matthew George Kelley.

A private family graveside service was held Tuesday, July 7, 2020, at the Murray City Cemetery.
