Stacy Jo (Thrailkill) Wehrenberg

NORMAN — Stacy Jo Wehrenberg, 52, of Norman passed away Wednesday, Sept. 26, 2012 after valiantly battling an extremely rare form of breast cancer for almost two years.

A Celebration of Life memorial service will be 1 p.m. Tuesday, Oct. 2, at McFarlin Memorial United Methodist Church in Norman with the Rev. Linda Harker officiating. The family requests memorial attendees join them in wearing bright colored clothing to express the love and joy Stacy brought into our lives.

Stacy was born March 21, 1960, in Ann Arbor, Mich., to Karen M. and Gene P. Thrailkill. She moved to Norman from Athens, Ohio, in 1971 with her family. She graduated from Norman High School in 1978 and was employed by Dr. Reg Sherrill, a Norman optometrist, from 1978 to 1980.

She attended the University of Oklahoma and received a Bachelor of Human Relations degree in December 1984. While at OU, she was a member of the Pride of Oklahoma marching band, directed by her father. Stacy was very active and served as President of Tau Beta Sigma, the honorary band sorority.

In 1986, Stacy was employed by the University Student Media Department as administrative assistant and business office manager. Beginning in 1999, she spent 16 months as director of publications at the University School of Music. Stacy was recognized for 25 years of service to the University in 2011.

On December 31, 2002, Stacy and Michael J. Wehrenberg were married in Norman. Their daughter, Abigail Dawn, was born a year later on Dec. 8. A devoted wife, mother, daughter, sister, and aunt, Stacy was courageous in her battle with cancer. In life she always wore a smile and maintained an incredible sense of humor; however, her greatest attribute was her selfless, caring love and concern for others. The greatest example of her selflessness, Stacy donated blood to be used for research with hope that it may prevent others from experiencing what she endured.
