MILESTONE: Belinda Curtis
Throughout her fight, knowing that Jesus was the Good Shepherd, Belinda knew Jesus knew how to lead His own through the valley of the shadow of death.
Belinda always desired to be a “sheep” following her Shepherd — keeping her head down, not looking up and searching out there for what was coming.
She was determined to follow the sandals of the Good Shepherd by keeping her eyes on His sandals. She was confident that He knew the direction they needed to go and the pace they needed to keep.
She had nothing to worry about, because she knew what was awaiting her at the finish line.
Belinda is survived by her husband, Tim Curtis, preaching minister for the Georgetown Church of Christ in Texas; her daughter, Andrea and her husband Aaron Miller; her son, Jeff Curtis; her parents, Jack and Rita Harriman; and her brothers Randy, Tom and Jason Harriman.
After graduating from Harding University in Searcy, Ark., in 1981, Belinda helped many people through her role as manager of volunteer services at Agape Child and Family Services in Memphis, Tenn., and at Scott and White Hospital in Round Rock, Texas.
She also served as the executive director of court-appointed special advocates in Searcy for a time.
Belinda’s love for God and for other people was reflected in the support she received from all over the world during her fight with cancer. She was a person of grace, strength and beauty which were displayed throughout her life, even to the end.
Her husband commented, “Belinda did not lose her battle to cancer; she won it. Cancer was unrelenting, but it did not break her spirit.”
