Posted: Tuesday, January 5, 2021. 1:58 pm CST.

By BBN Staff: Prime Minister John Briceno has confirmed that Belize’s first Governor-General, Dame Minita Gordon will be laid to rest in a state funeral.

However, a date is yet to be announced.

Gordon served as Belize’s first Governor-General from 1981 to 1993, the first woman in the Commonwealth to assume the role.

Dame Minita was a lifelong educator and patron of the Girl Guides Association and served as District Commissioner from the Belize District in 1970; lifetime member of the British and Belizean Red Cross Societies; and in her spare time a master prize-winning leather craft artisan.

May she rest in peace.
