Belinda Peacock

Belinda Jackson Peacock was born in Dublin, Georgia on February 13, 1954, to the late Robert “Ironhead” Jackson and Mary Jackson. She went to be with the Lord on Sunday, June 30, 2019, at CHI Memorial Hospital.

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. She attended Dublin High School in Dublin, Georgia and on January 2, 1974, she married Charles Peacock. To that union, three beautiful daughters were born. 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.

Belinda enjoyed watching television especially Lifetime TV, Hallmark, Cooking Channels, and Sports Networks. She was a loving and devoted family woman who was a great cook, wife, mother, grandmother and great-grandmother. Belinda was a wonderful caring person and a second mom to many.
