HARDY, Kimberly
Kimberly Hardy, beloved daughter, sister, aunt, and friend, passed away peacefully on Friday, June 19, 2015, at her home in Austin, following a brave fight against cancer. She was 36. She is survived by her parents, David and Linda Hardy, her grandmother, LaRue Murray, sisters Angela Hardy and Janelle Cluff, brother Charles Hardy, brother-in-law Stephen Cluff, and nieces Victoria, Elizabeth, and Kathleen Cluff. She is also survived by her beloved dog and cat, Estella and Ophelia, as well a vast number of dear friends and colleagues.

Kim graduated from the University of Texas with a degree in English. She taught English and Journalism for many years at Leander High School, and sponsored the student film club there. She later became certified as a paralegal and worked as a legal assistant at Allensworth & Porter, LLP. Over the years, she worked part time at Waterloo Records, Amy's Ice Creams, and Flipnotics, and volunteered at SXSW and Sundance Film Festival.

Kim, a.k.a. Sic Shooter, was active in the Texas Rollergirls for over ten years, skating for the Honky Tonk Heartbreakers, working as team captain, assisting with league business and marketing, and coaching, among other things. She was recently recognized for her contributions with Class Emeritus status, a high honor for skaters who have gone above and beyond.

Kim was beautiful, funny, kind, strong, and adventurous. She loved riding her bike, camping, hiking, swimming, film, and music. She inspired everyone she met with her bright and loving personality. She will be profoundly missed.

She was my hero during one family reunion: always watching out for me and being a true friend. I will always remember her that way: heroic! :)

Words are difficult to find. While I was never in a "real" team with Sic/Kim, I skated & worked alongside her for many many years, & had nothing but respect for her. I saw her at a practice not very long ago ... still smiling & helping. She will be very missed.

I knew Kim about 10 years ago as Sic Shooter from the TXRollergirls. We were on different teams and not close, but she was smart and kind, and I was glad to have known her. I am so sorry for your loss. I know that she will be missed.

Kim was a true friend - loyal, trusting, kind, hilarious and a complete joy to be around. We met right after I moved to Austin and she welcomed me completely right away. We had so many adventures, road trips, laughs, and night swims - I really do cherish the memories of my times with her. Kim, I am very sorry to see you go, but I am glad that your painful struggle has ended. You inspired so many people during your short time here. Much love always to Kim and to everyone who had the joy of knowing her. xoxo

I knew Kim briefly from seminary, but even from such a brief time I remember her well as being kind and welcoming, beautiful eyes and smile. I had admired her self confidence as well. Her mom, Linda, was my seminary teacher so my heart really goes out to her and of course the rest of the family.
