She graduated from Ferndale High School in 1986 and later attended Northwest Indian College and Western Washington University in which she earned her BA degree. Education was important to Belinda.

She was the first chapter president when Phi Theta Kappa came to NWIC and also one of the first recipients of the Bill and Melinda Gates Scholarship. Anyone who knew Belinda would describe her as a kind and loving person. She showed her love by spending her time with her family, whether it was with her hands beading, on the water fishing, casino hopping, playing pool or playing softball. She will be remembered as someone who would say hello and include a warm hug along with it. Belinda will be missed by all who knew her.

    Sending Healing Prayers to her family – her children and grandbabies that she cherished as she spoke so fondly of with me, her mother and her siblings, and to my cousin Scotty. It was a great pleasure to meet Belinda and enjoyed her company when she would stop by. “B:” as some of our family would say as nick name for Belinda, She will be missed by many as I am still in shock that the Dear Lord Jesus called her home and that her work is done here on earth. Belinda always had that warm smile and hugs and laughter and few tears. Belinda was gifted with a beautiful spiritual song, It will be different to see my cousin Scotty with out her by his side. I pray that the Dear Lord Jesus will shine his light upon the family , and Scotty in their time of need of grief and sadness in their hearts, and to protect them as they adjust .
    God Bless each and every one as well that carry heavy heart, all the people that she embraced of her presence.
    Fly High Belinda as those that are on the other side will great you …….
