Belinda Jacqueline Nash
Virginia Beach - Mrs. Belinda Nash passed away on the morning of February 16, 2016, after a long and courageous battle with cancer. She is survived by her husband Herbert Nash. This loving mother also leaves behind a son Donovan Lenaghan (wife Maggie, daughter Lauren), and daughters Kim Gregorio (husband Vince, daughter Cassidy), Danielle Sheets (husband Chris, daughter Kathlene), three stepsons, Doug, Scott and Mike Nash as well as their families. Belinda Nash, formerly Tomsett, is also survived by brothers Don and David and sisters Joyce and Ruth.
Belinda's achievements as a local author and historian led to the exoneration of Virginia's only convicted witch, Grace Sherwood, which left Belinda's mark on our local history. In addition to volunteer work, she also devoted a large part of her life caring for animals and preserving history in our community. Her family and friends will miss her warm smile and her generous nature. Her family would like to express the sorrow they feel of this loss and ask the public to keep them in their prayers and in lieu of flowers to donate to the Friends of the Ferry Plantation House, 4136 Cheswick Lane, Virginia Beach, VA 23455.
A Celebration of Life will be held on Monday, February 22, 2016, 11:00 a.m. at Old Donation Episcopal Church, 4449 N. Witchduck Road, Virginia Beach, Va.
