Vale Kelsey Robertson

1964-2022



It’s with unfathomable sadness I advise the passing of my beautiful wife Kelsey – aka Mrs iMotorhome – on Saturday 29 October, just a month and a day after her 58th birthday.


The cancer Kelsey had so bravely fought for three months and which we believed conquered, returned with a vengeance, to the disbelief of everyone, including her treatment team. It was just two weeks from re-diagnosis until her peaceful passing in palliative care, whilst I held her hand…


Kelsey genuinely lived life to the full, especially her 32 years as an international flight attendant with Qantas, 25 of which were as a Customer Service Manager. A nurse by training, her first job was with Woolworths whilst still at school. Ironically, Kelsey said she had come full-circle, returning to Woolworths due to COVID-19 after taking voluntary redundancy from flying.


Many of you had met Kelsey and some of you were fortunate to count her as a friend. Thank you. She loved the motorhoming life and as we were transitioning to retirement, we'd just decided to downsize and invest in a ‘proper’ motorhome.


As anyone who has lost the love of their life knows, there are no words to comfort or console. In time I will return to motorhoming and hope to run into some of you in my travels. Until then, please raise a glass to Kelsey's memory, she would love that. If you are fortunate enough to have someone special, cherish every moment and take nothing for granted. Life is fragile and tomorrow is promised to no-one, so make the most of it. See you on the road…

Richard.

Dear Richard, You & Kelsey visited me at Oberon NSW in 2014 & camped on the river. Kelsey cooked us the most beautiful meal in your test RV from Trakka. You got bogged the next day leaving your campsite. Reading about your loss today hit me like a brick. I found Kelsey so warm & friendly. We had a great evening together. My heart aches for you Richard. Remember the good times you had together. There must be so many. Regards. Colin Hunt

Richard, So so sorry to hear the news. Kelsey will be so missed by all who knew her. She made everyone feel so welcome at the get togethers. Keep travelling, she will always be with you, in your heart and in spirit. Neil and Gayle.

So sorry to hear such sad news. Taken way too young. I also lost my husband due to cancer in February this year. He was ten years older than your darling wife.We were also planning to go around Australia etc., I am currently on my first totally solo motorhome trip, and have also been away with a local caravan club, who have been very welcoming. It’s nice to continue travelling in the motorhome, but not the same as it would have been. Sincere condolences.

Dear Richard,

I did not know Kelsey personally but please accept my sympathy for your loss. Though certainly older than you I lost my wife to cancer 5 1/2 years ago.Life is certainly very different however I have continued taking trips in my Motorhome. Though single I have generally well accepted by other traveller.

My sincere condolence.

John
