Leopard Tuesday is committed to continuing the life and legacy of Paige Ethington Hardy, a force of nature who was adored by so many. Ovarian cancer may have taken her life, but it couldn’t touch her spirit.
“You look gorgeous!” “Hello, sunshine!” “Y’all are crazy.” Paige lit up the world with her enormous heart, vivacious wit, and glamorous style. She laughed loudly and often and gave freely without expecting anything in return. If you ask those who were lucky enough to know Paige, they’ll tell you how she never forgot a birthday, how she could talk to literally anyone, and how she filled an entire room with that beaming smile of hers.
A devoted wife to her husband Tripp, loving mother to her five children
and friend to many, Paige’s strong faith and ability to live life to its very fullest inspired everyone she met.
Paige grew up in Shelbyville, Kentucky, traveled the world and settled in New York City, where she gave her time generously to numerous organizations and raised her family, which became known affectionately as the "Hardy Party."
It's hard to capture in words Paige's combination of glowing personality, grace, humor and strength. Imagine a show-stopping smile, sparkling with love and enthusiasm, wrapped in a fabulous leopard coat, with an encouraging "Oh honey" whenever you were having a bad day.
If Paige could speak with us today, she would remind us that we are not promised tomorrow, so make the most of every day. She touched our hearts and hers is a light that will shine on.
