Charolyn "Punky" Proffitt, 66, passed away on November 25, 2015 in Ruidoso.

Punky was blessed with a large and loving family. She was the first born child to Charles and Shirley Word in El Paso, Texas. She loved going to the movies with her grandchildren, trying new make-up, eating catfish with her brother, and watching TV. Punky made the world a better place. Through her actions, she taught us about love, courage, and devotion.

Punky was reunited in Heaven with her daughter, Shanyn; son, Jon Bryan; father, Charles Word; and step-father, Carl Cornelius.

A private memorial will take place with family and friends.
