Kimberly Ann Martin was born on October 5, 1963, in Winchester, Massachusetts. She passed away on January 22, 2024, after a sudden decline in her health. Kim was only 60 years of age.

Kim is survived by her loving husband, Gary Stack, her two sons, Matthew and Tyler Berry, her sister, Lee Martin, and her children, Emma and Isabella, and extended family members and many loyal friends. Kim was predeceased by her father, Thomas James Martin III, mother, Patricia Dennen Martin, and sister, Jill Elizabeth Martin.

Kim studied Business at the University of Southern New Hampshire. After graduating in 1984, Kim lived in Connecticut with her family, focusing on raising her two young boys. She relocated back to Woburn in 2001 and began working as an Executive Assistant at Heimlich Brothers for several years before transitioning to Executive Assistant to the CEO of L3 Security & Detection Systems of Woburn, where she worked until 2020.

For anyone who knew Kim, they knew her love of the ocean and sun. She could spend endless hours at the beach reading and tanning. Growing up, Kim spent her summers in Gloucester on the beach and on the water, working on a whale-watching boat. As an adult, she shared that joy with her children. Her family will cherish many fond memories of long summer days at Long Beach, exploring Bearskin Neck, and sharing her love of whale watching. Kim cherished her boys and invested time and energy to craft a loving family life during their childhood. Forever proud of her children, touting them as her greatest accomplishments.

Kim and Gary spent their 20 years together creating a home where Kim could tend to her garden of flowers and vegetables. She and Gary spent endless hours enjoying their work, building something from the ground up. She got great joy sharing the fruits of their labor with family and friends. It was a place where Kim was truly happy and at peace. Over the summers, Gary and Kim enjoyed many trips to Saratoga with family and friends and two very special trips to Ireland.

Kim will be remembered in the hearts and minds of those family and friends who loved her dearly.

    I am so sad to hear of Kim’s passing. She always had a bright and contagious smile.Kim was someone I admired because of her confidence and exuberant energy. She was always kind and welcoming when I would go to Lee’s whether in Woburn or at the beach . I have special memories of spending time with the Martin family during my childhood.
    Lee, you are especially in my mind.
    To Gary, Matt and Tyler I hope the memories you have of your wife and Mom will bring a smile and some laughter.
    Rest in peace Kim.
