Mrs. Belcher was born and raised in Patoka, and she graduated from Patoka High School in 1979. After graduating, she later worked for Littlefuse Factory and Clinton County Electric as a meter reader. She loved her small town. She was devoted to helping the community by serving on the Fall Festival Committee, her children's school activities, and was a member of the Patoka Christian Church. She loved the holidays and shopping. She enjoyed spending her time at the lake and swimming in her pool.
