Memorial Service for Belinda LaViolette Saturday Feb 7th


Hancock Park area residents were saddened to learn of the sudden death of Belinda LaViolette on Thursday, January 29th of a heart attack. The vibrant, affable Belinda, 62, was an active tennis player and hiker, realtor and volunteer who raised her five children in Windsor Square and centered much of her life in the Larchmont neighborhood.

Prior to her successful career as a realtor for Coldwell Banker in the Hancock Park North office, Belinda was a Sales Consultant for a New York based clothing company, Casuals Etcetera, and helped dress many of Hancock Park’s most fashionable women. Belinda was born in Scotland to the Balfour family, and moved from the United Kingdom to Los Angeles some 30 years ago.

Belinda raised her five children in the Windsor Square area and was involved in their early education at St. James Episcopal, Brentwood, Wildwood and Marlborough School. Her children, Ben Stone, Miranda Stone, Nick Stone, Olivia LaViolette and Lucy LaViolette have studied at universities around the country including UC Berkeley, UC Santa Barbara, Kenyon College, UCLA Anderson School of Business, and the University of Colorado at Boulder.

Belinda took great joy in being an active member of the Los Angeles Tennis Club where she played on various LATC teams in the Westside Tennis League and the USTA  for many years. Loved for the twinkle in her eye, her light-hearted laughter, all the gatherings she hosted for good friends and family, and the attentive love she showed to many, Belinda LaViolette will be sorely missed in the neighborhood.
