Kristy Marie Hilbig was born on November 11, 1985 in Austin, Texas to Joe and Carol Hilbig. They greeted her with great joy and excitement as they waited 10 years after their first daughter, Kim had come into their lives. Kristy made their family complete. She was a happy, energetic child and kept her family constantly entertained. She passed away unexpectedly and joined her Father in Heaven on February 13, 2021.

In her short time on this earth, she accomplished many things. Kristy was a proud Girl Scout throughout her school years and developed deep bonds with her Girl Scout leaders and sisters. She loved Camp Texlake and enjoyed many adventures with her troop!

She graduated from Anderson High School and went on to earn her Bachelor of Arts in Mass Communications & Media Studies from Texas State University. She was currently working in Printing and Marketing in Austin. She was also a partner at HEB, holding several positions at stores in both Austin and San Marcos.

Kristy had many hobbies. She loved reading and recommending books to others and shared her stack of reads at the end of every year. She was also a budding writer and took many courses in creative writing. She enjoyed spending time with fellow writers, brainstorming ideas and storylines.

Kristy was an accomplished photographer. After years as the family photographer and filling walls with beautiful photos, she had recently started taking photos professionally. Kristy especially loved snapping pics of her two nieces, Marissa & Mia, who were always willing to pose for her. She had an eye for capturing nature and gorgeous scenery. She was a lifelong Austinite and loved searching for new scenes and murals all around town with her adoring boyfriend, Jose.

Kristy loved being an Aunt, and adored her two nieces, Marissa and Mia, with every ounce of her heart. She spent every chance she could with them and especially enjoyed celebrating birthdays, holidays and family outings. Kristy enjoyed many travels with her family and friends. Her favorite place in the world was Hawaii. She wore a gold medallion with a Hawaiian inscription nearly every day of her life. She also loved Six Flags, Schlitterbahn, Disney World and riding roller coasters.

Kristy was most known and loved for her beautiful smile, happy giggle, big hugs and the joy she brought to everyone around her.

Kristy is preceded in death by her grandparents Joseph and Ernestine Nolan and Herbert and Edith Hilbig. She is survived by her loving parents, Carol and Joe Hilbig, her only sister, Kim Mallinger and brother-in-law, Daniel Mallinger, her adoring nieces, Marissa & Mia Mallinger. She also had many aunts and uncles, cousins and friends whom she stayed very close to throughout her life. She will be missed beyond measure by all.

We regret that due to the pandemic, there will not be a visitation prior to the rosary. And due to limited facilities, we will not be able to have a reception following the services at the cemetery. At this time, services will be limited to immediate family. A celebration of Kristy’s life for friends and extended family to gather will be planned as soon as it becomes safe for everyone.

At this time, we ask for your continued prayers for our family. Kristy was a devout Catholic her entire life and in lieu of flowers, donations are welcome to support the restoration and renovation of our family church, St. Albert the Great Catholic Church, which suffered major damages from the recent weather event.

I just found out about Kristy's passing. I was her Second Grade teacher at Summitt ElementarySchool and Kristy was in the gifted program. Her mother, Carol was my Room Mother. I also previously taught Kim. The entire family is talented and remarkable!

I am saddened that Kristy's time here on Earth was so short, but she accomplished so many things in that short life.

My prayers and sympathy are with this entire family; but there is JOY in knowing that Kristy is with our Lord in Heaven.

May God's Blessed Peace surround you all!

Carol, Joe, and Kim, I am so unbelievably sorry for the loss and pain you are feeling right now. Kristy was such a beautiful person. I always loved joking with her about which “Kristy/i H” Ms. Sue or Ms. Vicki was asking for (although I’m sure it was always me, always in trouble). Kristy was never the one in trouble, she was so kind, so sweet, and had the absolute best giggle. I’m so sad we lost touch over the years. The last time I saw her she was working at Walgreens and she stopped me and we had such a nice conversation catching up for a while. I’m so sad knowing I don’t get a chance to catch up with her again, but I know she’s in a better place. I will miss every childhood memory of all our campouts, meetings, cookie sales, mischief, but most of all I will miss her bright smile.

I have so many wonderful memories; taking a trip to the Riverwalk in San Antonio which Kristy loved so much, we went camping at Enchanted Rock for one of my birthdays, we took her grandma to the Japanese Tea Garden, and always met up at Chuy's so she could get her queso fix. While she was going to school in San Marcos we would write long letters back and forth because we had opposite schedules. She was organized, had great handwriting, loved photography, gave the BEST hugs, and loved her family and friends above all else. She had one of the most beautiful smiles God's ever created. A true gem and an old soul. Her family will always be in my thoughts and prayers.
