Esther Mae Belvin of Achilles, died at her home on March 24, 2020.

Born Sept. 12, 1935 to Elbert and Alice Brown Williams, she was a member of Union Baptist Church. She retired from Gloucester County Public School System after serving 30 years as a bus driver, in addition to helping her husband Bennie with the operation of Belvin Seafood, Inc.

Due to the coronavirus, a private graveside service was held at 2 p.m. on Sunday, March 29, 2020, conducted by the Rev. Richard Whiteheart at Gloucester Point Cemetery. Mrs. Belvin was laid to rest beside her husband, Bennie Howard Belvin, of 59 years and near her grandparents, Phil and Daisy Brown.
