Predeceased by parents Clayton Thomas Holloway and Gertrude Nora Holloway (Peddle) and sister Gloria Holloway.

Belinda was hard working and full of life. She enjoyed gardening and handiwork and had a special love for sewing. However, few knew she was a talented sketch artist—a skill she passed down to her children and grandchildren. Her daughters have fond memories of watching various baking/cooking, home makeover, and home building shows with her. Most importantly, they inherited her love of having dessert with every meal.

She also had a very special love for preaching about God’s Kingdom. She spent many years as a teen and young adult as a full-time pioneer. She maintained her faithful service her entire life, including during the years after her diagnosis, through letter writing and phone calls. Belinda also had a strong faith in the hope for those who died. Knowing her cancer was terminal, Belinda did not fear death. She believed the words of Jesus recorded in John 11:11–14 about Lazarus. Jesus compared Lazarus’s death to “sleep.” And in the future, Belinda would, under God’s Kingdom Rule (Matthew 6:9, 10), share in the fulfillment of John 5:28, 29: “Do not be amazed at this, for the hour is coming in which all those in the memorial tombs will hear his voice and come out, those who did good things to a resurrection of life.” She would then enjoy life the way Jehovah God originally intended mankind to do where there will be no more war, crime, violence, sickness or death—living forever on a peaceful paradise earth.

Belinda will be fondly remembered by all she knew for her kindness, lightheartedness, and willingness to help in any way she could.

In keeping with Belinda’s wishes, cremation will take place.

Funeral Service will take place Sunday, July 3rd, 2022, at 3:00 p.m. at the Kingdom Hall of Jehovah’s Witnesses at 116 Ville Marie Drive, Marystown, NL, and via Zoom Video Conference for those who cannot make it due to various circumstances. Please click on the tab for Belinda's Funeral Service
