Mrs. Hart was born on December 25, 1933, in Murray, Kentucky to the late George S. Hart and Lochie Broach Hart. She was retired in public relations from Time Warner Cable in Murray, Kentucky and was a member of the 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 was an active participant in many civic organizations and maintained a close watch over her beloved Murray State campus. Lochie shared her father's interest in politics and remained active in the Democratic Party for many years.

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. Lochie 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 is preceded in death by one daughter, Lore Broach Landolt.
