Belinda aka "BJ" was born to the union of Miss Julia Lee Clack and Mr. I J Earls on October 6th in San Antonio, Texas.  Shortly afterwards the Earls moved to Corpus Christi, Texas. She went to school in the West Oso District in Corpus Christi, Texas for all of her grades. She died January 16, 2022 in Round Rock, Texas.

At an early age Belinda joined St John's Baptist Chuch on Greenwood Drive in Corpus Christi, Texas under the patronage of Rev Harold Branch.  She faithfully attended church to her transferring in her job and moving to Austin, Texas in 1972. 

Belinda loved to drive so she had many transportation jobs.  Some of her employers were Capital Metro; Corpus Christi ISD school bus driver; Borden's Milk; Frito Lays; Austin ISD school bus driver and many more. She worked until her health failed. Her favorite past time was eating food and watching television.  In her spare time, she loved music too and as soon as the beat started so did she start bopping her head, snapping her no sound finger, to swaying her feet to the music.

Belinda was predeceased by her mother Miss Julia Lee Clack Earls in 1985 and father Mr. I J Earls in 1988.  Belinda is now resting with many of her grandparents, cousins, aunts, and uncles and many more friends.

Belinda is survived by her sister Goldia Mae Earls; aunt Buelah Earls Sutton; nephew Issac Earls (Olimpia); niece Julene Earls: her very special caretakers Ms. Julene Earls and Mr. Greg James plus her sister cousin Glenda Clack.  In addition Belinda leaves her God Sister Renee Springs Duchane, many cousins and many more relatives and friends.

To Belinda "There are no good-byes. Forever you will be with us, you will be in our minds always.  As well Belinda will be loved by each of us"
The family of Belinda Earls wishes to extend our sincere thanks to each of you for the many words of comfort during the Earls family sad time.
