Belita Margueritta (Burns) Helms

October 24, 1946 ~ October 7, 2021 (age 74)


Belita Margueritta Burns Helms, 74, of Fayetteville, NC passed away on Thursday, October 7, 2021.

Belita loved working in her yard and traveling, especially to Disney World and Universal Studios in Florida.  She loved shopping, especially bargains!  She was one of the original Black Friday shoppers, even before it became popular. She loved Christmas and decorating for it.  She has a closet full of baby clothes, bought on sale, that she would generously give to people in need, but her biggest joy was spending time with her grandchildren.

As an avid animal lover, she worked with Save A Dog A Day to rescue dogs in need.  During the 8 or 9 years she participated with them, she assisted in rescuing well over 500 dogs.  In lieu of flowers, memorials may be made at

The Family will receive friends at Jernigan-Warren Funeral Home on Wednesday, October 13, 2021 from 6pm to 8pm.  The funeral service will be held on Thursday, October 14, 2021 at 10:30am in the Jernigan-Warren Chapel. Burial will follow at 12 noon in Sandhills State Veterans Cemetery, FT. Bragg, NC

She is survived by her husband of 55 years, Marshall Larry Helms, Sons Chad Edward Helms & Trevor Scott Helms. Grandchildren, Sidney Marshall Reed Helms, Shae Morgan Helms & Charlotte Rose Helms.
