Away from school, Ms. Robison was a dedicated member of the Christ Temple Apostolic Faith Church and sang gospel music, both with her church choir and with the musical group “Endowed.” Ms. Robison also founded The Natalie Ford Project: Women Behind Bars in 2017 in honor of her late daughter.

Ms. Robison’s family established an online fundraiser to help pay for medical expenses.
