Michelle Sedillo Hardy
March 21, 1971 -- July 02, 2019

Our Michelle left us to be with our Lord and Savior on Tuesday, July 2, 2019 at the young age of 48. Michelle was born at St. Agnes Hospital in Fresno, California to parents, Pablo and Dorothy Sedillo. When she was three months old, the Sedillo family moved across the country to the Washington D.C. area, a place Michelle would call home for years to come. 


As the youngest of six children, Michelle (Shelly) was always well-taken care of - through the early years, the later years, and every year in between. Michelle looked up to her parents and siblings for guidance and encouragement and though she grew to be the tallest of the bunch, she was never short of love, laughter, and endless bowls of Cheerios. 


Michelle went on to study Communications and Television Production at the Virginia Commonwealth University where she soon found a second family in her sorority, Sigma Sigma Sigma. Shortly after graduation, she moved to Dallas to be closer to her brother, Michael, and began her professional career at EDS.


In 1996, while out with friends at a country and western dancehall, Michelle locked eyes with Ron Hardy, not knowing he would soon become her dance partner for life. A year and a half later, Ron asked Michelle to spend the rest of her life with him and his daughter, Erica; and in 1998, they were dancing to Clay Walker’s “Hypnotize the Moon” for the first time as husband and wife in Santa Fe, New Mexico. 


“She knew she caught my eye, that was all it took. Ain’t it strange how forever changed with just one look…She shines like a diamond when she walks into a room. She can charm the stars, hypnotize the moon.”


In 1999, Ron, Michelle, and Erica became a family of four when their daughter/Erica’s younger sister, Sierra, was born and their lives were forever changed. Throughout the years, their unbreakable bond and love for each other brought years of joy, fun-filled family vacations, basketball and softball games, and plenty of laughs. 


She was the biggest cheerleader for not only her two girls, but her nieces and nephews – whom she loved and took great pride in. As an Auntie, Michelle never missed a graduation, a birthday, a big game - any milestone, she was there, cheering them on with a big smile. And she never backed down to a challenge during the Sedillo family Christmas games. She was the Auntie they all wanted on her team. 


On top of her love for family, Michelle had a special place in her heart for her close friends, the Redskins, and every Bravo show that ever aired. She had a cameo on Andy Cohen’s Watch What Happens Liveand instantly became a star. She even got a birthday shoutout from Cohen himself! 


In March 2019, Michelle was diagnosed with stage IV pancreatic cancer. But in true Michelle fashion, she didn’t back down. She took the news and decided to fight. Throughout the next four months, Michelle – with the support of her family and friends – proved just how much strength and determination she had. But on July 2, our Lord decided it was time to rid Michelle of all her pain and bring her Home. 


We as a family are now in peace knowing that Michelle is not only in the presence of our Lord and Savior, but is now in the arms of her older brother, Michael. 


Michelle is survived by her parents, Pablo and Dorothy Sedillo (Santa Fe, New Mexico), her five siblings; brother Pablo (Angela), brother Patrick (Anita), sister Deborah (late husband, Doug), late brother Michael (Annette), sister Maria (Phillip); her devoted husband of 21 years, Ron Hardy; and daughters Erica, who works in Human Resources in Tyler, Texas and Sierra, who is a Junior at Texas Tech, studying Civil Engineering. 


A memorial mass will be held at St. Francis Assisi Catholic Church located at 8000 Eldorado Pkwy, Frisco, TX on Friday, July 12 at 11 a.m.


If you would like to send flowers, please send directly to the church office. The church can receive them Thursday afternoon and Friday morning from 8 a.m. to 9 a.m. They will be presented and moved to the church during Mass. 


Though she was the youngest, she was the mightiest. She fought with fierce bravery and a sense of humor. The cancer didn’t win. We – her husband, two daughters, and family and friends – won. For we are fortunate enough to have spent years creating beautiful memories with our Shelly.


Similar to how she lived her life, Michelle left this world with a smile - and with her family surrounding her with an abundance of love.
