She was preceded in death by her parents and sister, Tamara “Niecy” Denise Brewton.

Belinda was a devoted member of Orchard Knob Missionary Baptist Church where she served on the Usher Ministry until declining health prevented her attendance.

After spending a 20-year career in the U.S. Army, Belinda and Charles settled down in Chattanooga. They owned and operated several businesses including C&B Package Store, The Party Shop, and Steppin’ Out Pub & Grill.
