Belinda Carol Hetzman, 57, passed away early in the morning of Wednesday, March 25, 2020 at the Tampa General Hospital in Tampa, Florida.

She was born in Ann Arbor on June 10, 1962, the daughter of James Carroll and Patsy Ruth Campbell. She received her Bachelor’s and Master’s Degrees from Central Michigan University and taught school in Coleman, MI until her multiple medical conditions forced her to retire on disability in 1999. She married Michael Hetzman on August 23, 1987. Belinda, never defining herself by her medical diagnoses, lived life as fully as her health allowed. Of particular note, she, Mike and their two children, aged 3 and 13, sailed their 25-foot sailboat on the “Great American Loop” cruise over 1994/95 and spent nearly 30 years sailing in the Canadian North Channel. She was also very artistic and enjoyed working with a variety of media, especially water color paints. A true gourmet chef, she could fix sumptuous meals over a driftwood bonfire on a deserted Canadian Beach or prepare food and set a table worthy of any cooking show competition. She was also an accomplished Master Gardener and became knowledgeable of and an advocate of organic foods.

She was preceded in death by her father.

She is survived by her mother, Pat Campbell, of Mount Pleasant, a brother Michael Campbell (Rhoda), nephew Joshua and niece Kelli of Aspen, Colorado, husband, Michael, of Mount Pleasant, a daughter, Margaux Hetzman, M.D., of Louisville, Kentucky, a son (Mike’s), Sean Hetzman (Katherine), of Troy, Michigan and two grandchildren, Amelia Elizabeth Hetzman and Alex Scott Hetzman.

A Private burial, not exceeding the CDC guidelines, is planned. Per her wishes, a memorial service and luncheon will be scheduled for a date yet to be determined at the Clark Family Funeral Chapel in Mount Pleasant. In lieu of flowers, the family asks that you consider the Anna S.F. Lok, M.D., Hepatology Breakthrough Research Fund at the University of Michigan.

Belinda was such a beautiful woman - full of life and courage. Our son, Nick, went to school with Sean from Kindergarten to 12th grade. Belinda was one of those special people who lit up the room. I hadn't seen her for years, but in the past 6 months, I ran into her at Sam's Club. She was obviously weakened, but her beautiful spirit was still so visible. Belinda loved Sean, Maggie and her grandchildren and was very proud of what exceptional people they are. She'll be missed by those of us who knew her casually, but I know her loved ones are left with a gigantic void in their life. My deepest condolences to all of you.

My Dear Friend Belinda, You always had such a beautiful sparkle of love for life in your eyes. I will remember the days you helped "mother" our Girl Scout Troop into sweet compliance when giggling got out of hand or painting between the lines was contumacious. I admired your tales of sailing trips; sunrise colors witnessed by your family together - imagining you were the only ones to see the miracles of God playing with color from his palette. You lived life fully, happily, strongly, beautifully. We will chat again some day about those silly camping trips with our young scouts, our grown girls and the wonderful accomplishments they have achieved, our noble dogs we have raised and trained, and, of course, our husbands and the weather. I love you. Kip
