In the Senior Spotlight

Belinda Jones Special to The Clovis Independent

My name is Belinda Jones. I was born May 31, 1955 to parents Murphy Mae Rim and Izean Adam Rim Sr. in Alameda. I moved to Clovis at an early age and attended Cole Elementary. I went on to Clovis High schools where I was a letter girl and also senior class yell leader. I graduated from Clovis High in June of 1973. I continued my education at Fresno City College and earned my associate of art degree in child development. I transferred to Fresno State in 1975.

I married in 1976 and had two beautiful children, Jasmine and Jerrik.

I went to work for Kiddie Kare as a learning director for 23 years.

I wanted to further my career so I enrolled in San Joaquin College where I earned my degree in accounting/business law. I then in 1999 went to work for Fresno Superior Court, where I was clerk for 12 ½ years in family court. I recently retired in 2012. I then sold my house and moved to the Woods Country Living mobile home park.

I’ve traveled a lot and will start again now that I’m retired. I’ve been to the Bahamas; the Mexican Riviera; Essex, England; London, England; and New York to name a few, with more travel to come.

I have a very loving family of two brothers, two sisters, one now deceased, two children plus one, four grandchildren plus three, who support me in all my life adventures.

My favorite pastime is gardening and reading. My favorite time is spent with family.
