Mrs. Hart was born April 24, 1928 in Carney, Oklahoma to Charlie and Ava Tarlton. She was the second-born of five children.
She married the love of her life, Cleo Hart on June 23, 1946 in Tryon, Oklahoma. Shortly thereafter, they headed out East to Massachusetts to begin life together. They had two daughters, Lynda and Sharron. Upon retirement and after forty-plus years out East, they moved to Stillwater to again be closer to family.
Mrs. Hart has always been active in church. She taught Sunday school, participated in pageants, coordinated potlucks, visited the ill and house-bound, and helped with anything involving food. For those who have eaten a meal made by Mrs. Hart, this was always a welcome kindness. She worshipped at the First Baptist Church of Stillwater.
Mr. and Mrs. Hart were both active in the Stillwater Antique and Classic Car Club. They were frequently spotted around town or in local parades in either their fully restored 1923 Model-T Ford or 1928 REO Flying Cloud. The grandkids especially cherished the trips to the local ice cream shop in the T!
Mrs. Hart was preceded in death by her husband, Cleo Hart; brother, Billy Tarlton; and brother, JD Tarlton.
She is survived by her daughters and their spouses, Stewart and Lynda (Hart) Stilkey; Lynn and Sharron (Hart) Witters; grandchildren, Amy (Stilkey) Cross, Jeff Witters, Susan (Stilkey) Luff, Sara (Witters) Houk, and Rebekah Stilkey; great-grandchildren Makayla, Anna, Kaleb, Ava, Isaac, Clara, Eli, and Phoebe; brother, Howard Tarlton; and sister, Joyce (Tarlton) Scoggins.
