Kimberly-Robyn Grimes Lim, 28, passed away at home in Tappahannock on October 30, 2008 surrounded by her family.
She was born October 14, 1980 to her loving parents, Raymond and Brenda Grimes. She shared her life with her sister Jennifer, her devoted husband Ghuang Shun (Light), and hundreds of others. Her life was rich and full, and she touched so many people with her tender spirit.
Being in nature was one of her biggest inspirations. She loved skydiving, watersports, triathlons, mountain climbing, bodybuilding and travel. She brought God’s love to everyone she met, and carried it with her to Africa, China, Korea, Guatemala, and all over the U.S. She shared His peace and energy with the children whom she adored at Homestead Academy in Essex County, where she taught until her body refused to do it any more. Her legacy, for all those who knew her, will be her giving.
She overcame much in her short life, and despite numerous health issues, she was determined not to let them dictate how she lived. Cancer may have taken her life, but it could not take her spirit.
Funeral services were held Monday, November 3, in Marks-Bristow Funeral Home, Tappahannock, with Rev. Ben Wharton officiating. Interment will follow in Essex Cemetery.
Pallbearers were Larry Grimes, Jake Grimes, Mike Ingram, Robert Vick, Chris Wilkins and Jim Meagher.
In lieu of flowers, contributions can be made to St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital, 262 Danny Thomas Place, Memphis, Tennessee, 38105.
