City of Temple Terrace Wrote;
Yesterday our community lost a true treasure when resident Kim Straub passed away after a brief battle with cancer. First and foremost, the City extends our most sincere condolences to her husband, children and extended family. Their loss is unimaginable and our hearts go out to them. Her friends too have been left with a hole in our hearts and the promise of a little less sparkle in our lives.
Even if you weren’t lucky enough to have known her personally, you almost certainly had come across the lady in the cowboy hat. A former Resident of the Year, Kim Straub was a fixture in Temple Terrace. Perhaps best known for being the driving force behind the public art that now proliferates in the City, she also made it her mission to instill and nurture a spark of creativity in children.
An artist herself, Kim taught classes at the Rec Complex and took part in nearly every City event to host imaginative kids’ activities (like making pretend driver’s licenses at Touch-a-Truck or creating 4th of July rockets out of paper towel rolls at the Independence Day festival). She was the pixie dust that could turn empty water bottles, tissue paper and some paint into art.
Kim also was quite sprite-like in spreading positivity about this City, flitting from project to project, always wearing a smile, a hat and some fabulous shoes. She belonged to a number of community organizations and was a near constant presence at City Council and other meetings.
Kim was tireless in her efforts make Temple Terrace a better, more colorful place. She was a joy to collaborate with and brought out the best you could be. Like her laugh, her love for this community was infectious and she made you want to be a part of it.
The City is working on a way to honor Kim’s legacy of adding art and beauty to Temple Terrace.
In the meantime, please keep her family in your thoughts. And, if you can manage it in these difficult times, maybe turn up your own sparkle a bit in her honor. The City is about a quart low right now…
(As Kim would say) In love and art,
-Laurie Hayes, Marketing & Communications Officer
