Beverly Puff Obituary

Beverly Jane Puff, age 84, of Wartrace, TN passed away on March 1st, 2024 at Willow Branch assisted living in McMinnville, TN, surrounded by her family. She was born on September 16th, 1939 to parents Lloyd and Ruth Rhodes in Battle Creek, MI.

She is survived by her loving children, Pamela Farmer (Larry) of Battlecreek, Michigan, Rebecca Shahan of Tullahoma, Tennessee, Jim Whitney (Tammy) of California, Michael Puff (Leeann) of Wartrace, Tennessee, and David (Marilyn) Puff of Shelbyville, TN; and a number of grandchildren, great grandchildren, nieces and nephews. 
Beverly was well known by the community of Wartrace as the cook for the Walking Horse Hotel. She enjoyed cooking and preparing large portion meals for the guests that stayed at the hotel and for her family at home. She loved cats and kittens, and would constantly work on piecing together her latest puzzle. She had a very quick wit and wasn’t afraid to hold that back from anyone who presented her with an opportunity for a feisty remark. 

She will be loved and missed dearly by those whose lives she touched. 

Visitation will be held on Saturday, March 9th, 2024 from 9:00 AM to 11:00 AM with funeral services beginning at 11:00 AM at Tullahoma Funeral Home in Tullahoma, TN. Burial will immediately follow at Hillcrest Cemetery where she will be laid to rest beside her loving husband, Paul Lewis Puff, who precedes her in death.

A special thank you to Gentiva Hospice for giving her treatment in the comfort of her family in her last few days, and to Courtney (Branden) Andrews for allowing her a place where she was able to see all her family from in and out of town.


Friends and family have shared their relationship to show their support.
How do you know Beverly Jane (Rhodes) Puff?
We are sorry for your loss.
