Christina Pucci Memorial Fund

It is with the heaviest of hearts that we are creating this fund. Christina "Bean" Pucci lost her battle with cancer on June 1, 2019. Our family is completely heartbroken.  We want to honor her memory by creating this fund so that we can try to help another family with expenses in a similar situation or provide scholarship money to a student that shared her same interests. We thank you in advance for your continued love and support.

If you did not know Christina - or if you did - we thank you for your support and help funding our mission to help others. 

Christina Anne Pucci passed away at home on Saturday, June 1, 2019 surrounded by family and friends.  Affectionately known as "Bean" to her family, she was born February 11, 1989 at Norwalk Hospital to parents Sandee Gelven and Angelo Pucci.  Christina was known for her undeniable love that touched all who knew her.  She would be the first to offer a kind smile and a helping hand to those who needed it.  She found longtime friends all over the country on her adventures to find good music and new experiences.  Though her time on this earth was cut short, she lived her life how she wanted and did more than most people do in a lifetime.  Christina graduated from Greenwich High School in 2007 where she was an active member of the band.  She attended Eckerd College in St. Petersburg, FL majored in Environmental Studies and graduated with her Bachelors in 2011.  Christina always had a passion for gardening and on her move to Denver, CO she completed her Master Gardener Certification in 2018, which served her in her daily responsibilities as Landscape Supervisor at Lane Gardens in Denver.

Christina is survived by her loving and devoted dog Ryder, her mother Sandee Gelven and stepfather Michael Gelven of Ellicott City, MD and father Angelo Pucci of Greenwich, CT.   She also leaves behind her four sisters and their families: Alicia Gerbert of Stamford, CT, her husband Jeffrey and two sons Domenick and Daniel.  Erica Veronesi of Middlebury, CT and her husband Jamie.  Catherine Knight of Simpsonville, SC and her husband Jeffrey, and Sarah Pucci of North Haven, CT.  She is also survived by her loving aunts and uncles: Blythe Roberts of New Milford, CT, Keith Roberts of Elkin, NC, Connie Lockwood of Greenwich, CT, RoseAnn Heil of Rye Brook, NY, Ronald and Joan Pucci of Greenwich, CT, along with many cousins and several dear friends across the country.
