Belinda Nell was born March 25, 1940, to Albert Whitley and Eula Wright Whitley in Goldthwaite, Texas. Belinda married Daniel New on December 16, 1960, and they enjoyed over sixty-one years of happiness together. She had many jobs in her lifetime. But every job she had, or anywhere she went, she did everything she could to help as many as she could. She was a giver and gave of herself willingly and joyfully. She was admired and loved by all who came to know her. Her Christian faith and devotion to the Lord allowed her to have a true servant’s heart. She was a member of the Church of Christ and actively served in each town they lived in. She was preceded in death by her parents, daughter Melody Goff, sisters Thelma Ingram & Clista Clakley, great granddaughters Jaylie Gray & Gracelyn Gonzalez, and daughter-in-law Sharon New. She is survived by her husband Daniel New, Sr. of Jacksonville, son Daniel “Boog” New, Jr. of Rusk, daughters Rhonda Dover of Jacksonville and Nadine New of Rusk, son-in-law John Goff of Reklaw, brother Farrel and wife Michelle Whitley of San Saba, and sister Nita and husband Jim Clark of Mineola. She also leaves behind to cherish her memory thirteen grandchildren, thirty great grandchildren, two great-great grandchildren, and numerous extended family members.
