Henrietta “Henri” G. Belt
April 15, 1924 - May 14, 2003
DELTA - Henrietta “Henri” Gloria Belt was a perfectionist. Any task, project or activity, was given 110%, this continued on as she prepared to leave this life. Her passing was done with strength, dignity and style. She died on Wednesday, May 14, 2003, at her home in Delta, Colorado surrounded by those she loved. She was 79.

Henri was the daughter of George W. and Ruby (Malone) Fortune. She was born on April 15, 1924 in Trinidad, Colorado. She spent most of her youth in Grand Junction, Colorado and graduated from Grand Junction High School in 1942.
When she ventured out on her own she met a young feisty, redheaded Texan by the name of L.J. Belt. They were married on June 28, 1947. After L.J.’s military service in Korea and in California, they moved to Delta, where they have resided for the past 51 years. Together they raised two children, and they have seven grandchildren and six great - grandchildren.
Henri believed life began at 40. You could find her on the softball field in the summer and she was an avid bowler. She had many trophies to prove it. When arthritis took control of her hands she stopped bowling and pointed her energy toward the Elks Lodge in Delta where she worked and was a Charter Member and Past President of the Emblem Club. After retirement, her greatest love was volunteering as a “Pink Lady” at the Delta County Memorial Hospital. She loved helping other people and spending time with her Pink Lady Sisters. She made many cherished friendships during those days.
A rich legacy of truth, honor and hard work has been left with Henri’s family. “Little Memaw” will be greatly missed by her family. Survivor’s include her husband of nearly 55 years, L.J. Belt of Delta; one son, Lynn Jay Belt and wife Barbara of Delta; one daughter, Brenda Belt Marvel of Provo, UT; one brother, George Fortune of Grand Junction; six grandchildren: Michelle Armstrong and husband Steve of Wilmington, DE, Tricia Keller and husband J.R. of Delta, Trina Brillehart and husband Dave of Grand Junction, Raylynn Marvel of Oxnard, CA, Aaron Marvel and wife Mandy of Orem, UT, and Lee J. Marvel of Provo, UT. She is further survived by five great - grandchildren: Brandon Keller, Ethan Keller, Colby Keller, Maddy Brillhart and Mikayla Marvel. They were the love of her life. Her greatest worry about leaving this earth was L.J. Although he will be lost without her, he will be loved and well taken care of.
She now joins her parents, an infant son, a granddaughter, a great - granddaughter, a sister and other family and cherished friends on the next leg of the journey through life.
Henri’s family would like to thank Thelma and Linda from Touch of Care. They took loving care of their “Memaw”. They would also like to thank Anne at Hospice, who brought knowledge, care and comfort to L.J. as well as Henri. There is still goodness in this world.
