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.
