Lillian M. Garhartt

By | Obituaries

SARATOGA SPRINGS — Lillian M. Garhartt, formerly of Woodlawn Avenue, died peacefully on Sunday, May 18 at Wesley Nursing Home. She was 98 years old.

Lillian was born on February 22, 1916 in West Albany. She was the first child of the late Emily and William Parry.

Mrs. Garhartt was the loving mother of five children—a tower of strength and an inspiration for her children and grandchildren. 

When, due to unfortunate circumstances, she became the sole support for her young family, Lillian graciously and courageously kept her family together and safe. She became the matriarch of a large and very close extended family.

Lillian approached life with good humor and humility; those qualities, in addition to her sweet disposition, made her a role model for everyone whose life she touched.  

Mrs. Garhartt worked for many years as a meat packer with Tobin Packing Company in Albany.  Often she was simultaneously employed as a seamstress at one of several garment makers.

Lillian was a member of the Saratoga Springs and the Moreau Senior Centers.

Mrs. Garhartt is predeceased by a son, Georgie; a brother, George; a granddaughter, Kathy Yule and a great granddaughter, Erin Fay.

Survivors include three daughters, Lillian “Honey” Fay and husband Vincent C. of Saratoga Springs, Bertha Kezyma and husband Michael of Ballston Lake, and Mary Garhartt of Saratoga Springs; a son, James R Garhartt and wife Pamela of Johnsonville; a sister, Edith May; a sister in-law, Natalie Parry; 11 grandchildren: Vincent, Michael, Gregory, Christopher, Douglas, Valerie, Debbie, Sandy, Amy and Jill;19 great-grandchildren and two great-great-grandchildren.
