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 saveadogaday.net
