OBITUARY: Lydia Sara Ketting


Lydia Sara Ketting, age 59 of Nashville, TN, passed away on Saturday, May 4, 2024.

She was born on September 23, 1964, to Randall and Jayne Harley.

She was preceded in death by her parents and her son Raymond Ketting.

She is survived by her brothers, Jim (Liz) Harley and Tom (Becky) Harley; children, Timothy (Rachel) Harley, Caressa Ketting, and Chelston Ketting; and grandson, Landon Harley.

Lydia’s family was the center of her life. There aren’t many pictures of her by herself because she was always surrounded by those she loved. Her deep love extended to her animals, as she was known for always having dogs and cats in her home. She also enjoyed being outside in nature, whether that was relaxing on the beach or hiking with her family. Pickett Park was one of their favorite spots.

She had a knack for board games, and seemed to win quite often despite spending the whole game saying that she wasn’t sure if she was doing it right. Her wonderful sense of humor and warm smile made others feel at ease. She is already so deeply missed.

A graveside service was conducted on Saturday, May 11, 2024, at 10:00 a.m., at Mapleview Cemetery, Smyrna, TN.

In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to: Nashville Inner City Ministry.
