Belinda Blain Slutman

MOUNTAIN VIEW, CALIF. - Belinda Blain SlUtman moved peacefully onward in her supernal journey Aug. 19, 2009, in Mountain View, Calif.
Born Sept. 22, 1952, in Halifax County, Va., Belinda was a longtime resident of Hampton Roads and the Washington, D.C., metro areas, as well as Tokyo, Japan.
"B", as she is affectionately known, did not limit her existence to the average homestead. Her abode was the world. B traveled the globe, as she had always dreamed to, ablaze with curiosity. Inquiring and observing, B was a collector of snapshots of what the world has to offer. She shared those images with her many friends and family, chronicling her voyages throughout the years.
Upon meeting Belinda, one was immediately bonded, her gleeful exuberance for life contagious. Generous in heart and spirit, humble in her wisdom and presence, B was a most resplendent friend.
Belinda is survived by her adoring husband, Jim SlUtman, of Mountain View, Calif.; her sisters (spouses), Karen Deibler (Jim), Hampton, Va.; Denise Stefula (Billy), Poquoson, Va.; and Michelle Blain (Blair Toland), Cambridge, Mass.; and nieces and nephews, Casiphonie, Braxton, Hunter, Connor, and Haylie. B is also survived by the loving "global" family that evolved from the connections made whenever and where ever those similar hearts were revealed.
At B's request, there will be no formal ceremony marking her passing. Should you feel inclined to do something, Belinda asked that you do whatever comes naturally-a family outing, a gathering of friends, a donation to a favorite cause, or a random act of kindness-and simply think of her in the process. A celebration of her life is being planned for Sept. 27, 2009;
Belinda touched us all in different ways; what we all have in common is that she made us each feel very special. So please feel free to remember her in your own special way...
Belinda supported endeavors to the broader study of cancer, and particularly breast and uterine cancers.
