On Sunday, July 19, 2020, Kimberly Martin Robson passed away unexpectedly at her residence in Ashland, Virginia, at the age of 43 years. Kimberly was loved so dearly and will always be remembered by her family and friends.

Kimberly is survived by her husband, Michael; daughter, Madeline, 7; son, Camden, 5; parents, Dr. C. Allen Martin, Jr. and Virginia; siblings, C. Allen Martin, III, Lee Martin (Susan Martin); sister-in-law, Laura Martin; uncle, Willis C. Sherwood, III; aunt, Barbara Brown White; nieces and nephews, Leighton, Courteney, Olivia and Emmaline; and her adored pups, Parker and Arlien. She was preceded in death by her twin brother, Clifton; her two horses, Brody and Beau; and her dogs, Grayson, Tucker and Macy.

Originally from Mobile, Alabama, Kimberly attended Sweet Briar College and later resided in Richmond, Virginia, where she pursued a banking career. It was there she met Michael, married in West Palm Beach, Florida, in 2012, and resided in Ashland, Virginia where they raised their family.

Kimberly was very passionate and at her happiest when outdoors. Whether it was a 5k, 10k, half-marathon, full-marathon, triathlon, or rugged maniac, Kim was always up for an outdoor challenge, and she would crush it. She lived life to the fullest through the love of her dogs and horses, her passion for running and cycling, and spending time with her family and friends. She will be remembered for her incredible devotion, her passion to love unconditionally, her beautiful smile, generous heart and sweet voice that left an everlasting impression on anyone who knew her.

A visitation in Ashland, Virginia will be held Thursday, July 30, 2020, from 4 to 8 p.m. at Nelsen Funeral Home, 412 S. Washington Hwy., Ashland, VA 23005. A private graveside service will be held at a later date in Mobile, Alabama where Kimberly will be laid to rest next to her twin brother, Clifton.

I did not know Kim super well, but I knew her to be kind and supportive and just a beautiful person that brought her light wherever she went. I am so saddened to hear of her loss and I pray that her family will find peace in the days, weeks and years to come. I will miss seeing her beautiful, smiling face at the gym. She will be truly missed.

I’ll always remember our short but memorable morning and afternoon “Mom life” chats at Goddard - Sharing helped us feel like we were never alone in the wild wild world of parenting. Kim was beautiful and passionate. She will be missed.

I had the pleasure of being one of Madeline’s and Camden’s infant teacher. I will always remember her beautiful smile and pure love and joy she showered onto her children. She always expressed enthusiasm and interest in her children’s day.
To Madeline and Camden: Your mama was an amazing lady, and I feel privileged to have known her. I know you will miss her deeply. I’ll be keeping you in my thoughts and prayers.
To Mr Robson and the Martin families: Please accept my sincerest condolences. Sending you prayers for strength and comfort during difficult time.
May her memory be a blessing.
