Betty Mae Thompson-Barnum

Place of birth: New Orleans

Religious affiliation: Christian

Mrs. Betty Mae Barnum departed this life in exchange for eternal life with her Lord and Savior on September 4, 2017. She was born on April 8, 1937 in New Orleans, LA to the late Pearl Millett Thompson and the late Freddie Thompson, Sr. She was preceded in death by her husband Thaddeus Barnum and 2 Sons, Jerome Thompson and Michael Thompson, Sr. She leaves to cherish her memory: Two daughters, Maudie A. Thompson (Metairie, LA) and Shantell Barnum-Mosley (Cedric) (Dallas, TX). One son Gerald Thompson (Cincinnati, OH). 3 Grandchildren Michael A. Thompson, Jr., Dr. Latoya Batiste and Myles Lyons. One sister Delores Norman and one brother Byron Thompson and a host of nieces, nephews, cousins and friends.
Mrs. Betty accepted Christ at Antioch Baptist Church in New Orleans, and was a long-time member of Guiding Light Missionary Baptist Church in New Orleans where she served on the Usher Board and Willing Workers Committee. At the time of her death she was a member of Friendship Baptist Church in Kenner, LA.
Mrs. Betty was known for her sharp wit and comedic sayings. Never one to mince words, she would always have a quick comeback and she challenged all of us to be our best selves. We will miss her, we’ll miss her smile, we’ll miss her making us smile and laugh. But we know she is with God now, because more than anything, she was a Christian first. She knew God, she had a special relationship with Him. Rejoice! For she is with her God, her husband and her sons now! One more Angel to watch over us!

    My condolences for the loss of your dear loved one. In this time of grief, the Bible assures us: 'Almighty God is near to those that are broken at heart; and those who are crushed in spirit he saves.' (Psalm 34:18) Yes, more than anything else, a good relationship with God can truly help in coping during this time of grief.
