Kala Marie Hardy, 15, died April 5, 2008, in Anchorage.
A celebration of Kala's life will be from 4:30 to 7:30 p.m. today at Russian Jack Chalet, which can be accessed from DeBarr Road.
Born Dec. 7, 1992, in Anchorage, Kala was a freshman at East High School. She attended School Within a School, and was a member of Symphonic Winds, the school band.
She loved life and had many interests. Kala was also a member of the Honor Band at Wendler Middle School, and loved playing her clarinet. She enjoyed travel. She spent summers at Sitka Fine Arts Camp and visited her grandparents in Boston with her younger sister.
She will be severely missed by her family and all who knew her. Kala's bright, cheerful attitude, zest for life and optimism set her apart. She loved people, music, dance, shopping, fashion, shoes, reading, math and science, and hanging out with friends. Kala touched the lives of many and was ever hopeful that they were somehow better, or at least happier, for having known her.
She is survived by her parents, Kelly and Kevin Hardy; sisters, Brenna Hardy and Amber Whitney; and grandmother, Linda Whitney, all of Anchorage; and grandparents, Bob and Mary O'Leary of Boston.
Arrangements are with Alaska Cremation Society.
