Bethel Christian " Chrissy" Puma


Bethel Christian “Chrissy” Puma, age 31, passed away peacefully on January 11, 2021 due to complications from ARDS at St. Tammany Hospital in Covington.

Chrissy was born on October 3, 1989, to Mary Elizabeth “Liz” Thompson Puma & Joseph William Puma Sr. Chrissy loved living life to its fullest alongside her little pride and joy “Joshua.”

She loved attending church, with Brother Keith, Wayne, Mike, Steve, Holland, and Ellis. They were definitely her most favorite places to be singing praises to her God. She loved her family and wanted them to see them together enjoying each other all the time and her brothers and sisters in Christ but loved the Lord even more. Anytime of the day you would find her with the phone to her ear listening to His music.

Chrissy was a wonderful Mother, Sister, Aunt, Daughter, Niece and Friend. She loved painting and making crafts but most of all spending time with her son “ Joshua.” The love she had for Joshua and others showed deeply to everyone she met through her loving smile and soft warm hugs. Chrissy is already so very missed by many and we will forever have a void in our hearts.

Chrissy leaves behind her Son, Joshua Ray Arnold; Mom, Mary Elizabeth “ Liz” Thompson Puma Knight, Husband, (Perry); Dad, Joseph William Puma Sr., Wife (Debra); Sister, Mary Puma Holbrooks (Wesley); Brothers; Joseph “ Joey” Puma Jr. (Amber), Guytano “ Guy” Paul Puma; Grandfather, Calvin Paul “Sonny” Thompson Sr., and numerous Nieces, Nephews, Aunts, Uncles and Friends.
