as told by her friend, Debbie
Belinda is a wonderful woman, wife, mother, grandmother and
friend. She has a daughter and two grandchildren who live
close to her and help her when needed. Belinda had 2 sons
also, one passed away as an infant and one a couple years ago.
His children also live by her now too. It's been a tough life
for her. She met her husband Kurt a few years ago and they are
very happy. He is a truck driver so is gone a lot, which is
really hard on both of them at the moment.
She is in her 50's, and is on her third bout of cancer,
this one being colon cancer. There were 5 lymph nodes
involved, so they removed all 11. She had uterine cancer in
her 20's and a lump in her breast a few years ago.
She is the type of woman that would do anything for anyone
if at all possible. She managed to get through work throughout
chemo and radiation prior to surgery. She will be doing 6
months of chemo again when her strength is back up. She is a
very strong woman. She is also one of my bosses and I miss her
at work very much. She is always happy and her laughter can be
heard throughout the office.
She loves to decorate and make things, macramae, lamps,
tables etc. Her favorite hobbies at the moment are her
minature pinschers, standard doberman and her birds. She has a
Macaw, a Cockatoo and some beautiful parrotlets which she is
breeding. (I have one of her min pin puppies). She also loves
Angels and other old fashion dolls. Her favorite colors are
earthtones and the color purple, along with bright colors.
