A time to be born - Ecclesiastes 3:2

She was the oldest of two girls and was preceded in death by her father and mother

A time to love - Ecclesiastes 3:8

Belinda loved the Lord her God with all her heart, soul, and might.

Belinda loved her family and friends. She loved her job at Averitt Express and all her co-workers there.

She enjoyed watching movies and keeping an exceptionally beautiful home and yard. She loved to spend time with her best friend, Sandra Rich, and her sister, Cyndee McClain, and niece Taylor McClain and nephew Christian McClain.

She loved to read her Bible and send friends and family Bible verses. She loved all her aunts and uncles and cousins who lived all around her.

She loved being part of Cumberland Fellowship Church, in Crossville.

A time to build - Ecclesiastes 3:3

Belinda built an amazing relationship with her best friend, Sandra Rich, of 20 plus years.

Belinda graduated White County High School, in 1983, and then went on to New River Community College, in Virginia.

Belinda worked at Averitt for 26 years and truly enjoyed her job “most of the time.” Her co-workers became as close as family to her, and she truly loved them.

She also worked at Sparta City Hall before working at Averitt.

A time to die

At just a little over 56 years, God decided that Belinda had fought the good fight, she had finished her course and kept the faith. He called her home, on Nov. 10, 2021, while she was surrounded by family and friends.

A job well done. A life well lived.

A reward well deserved.

A precious jewel that was respected by all she encountered.

A precious jewel never to be forgotten.

A time to weep and laugh
