Read the entire obituary below:
Kasey Nicole Waychoff was born June 15, 1994 in Edmond, Oklahoma and her precious soul was released into God’s everlasting care March 21, 2014. She was a beloved daughter, sister, granddaughter, cousin, niece, and friend.
Kasey is survived by her parents, Shelby and Tracy Waychoff, and her brother and best friend Wesley. She is the granddaughter of Marlene/Handy Waychoff, and Jim/Kay Tucker, all of Tulsa, OK. Kasey is also survived by aunts and uncles: Jeff (Kit) Waychoff; Kelly Waychoff of Coppell, TX; Mary Ann (Kent) Crowl, of Houston, TX; Susan (Brent) Berna, Teresa Tucker (Julie Trainum) of Tulsa, OK. She is the cherished cousin of Ryan, Hunter, Christopher, Tanner, Alex, Kris, Hadley, Harrison, Ben and Jake. She also leaves behind her beloved dog, Sugar, and countless friends all over the world.
Kasey lived in Maumelle, AR and then started kindergarten in Flower Mound, TX. From the beginning, she excelled in school, athletics, and friendships. Kasey was a natural athlete that played softball, basketball, volleyball, rugby, ran track, and pole vaulted. In ninth grade, the family moved to Singapore, where she was a bright star at Singapore American School and developed a heart for other cultures, missions, and service to others. The family returned to Texas in 2010 and soon afterwards, they opened their home and hearts to a young boy from Indonesia who needed medical care here. Miduk became family and was a special little brother to Kasey. She graduated from Flower Mound High School in 2012.
Kasey was born wearing orange & black and so without question, chose Oklahoma State University as her college home. She found her sisters when she pledged Gamma Phi Beta sorority where she was active on many intramural teams and served as VP of Finance. Her love of travel led to a major in International Business and she was recently accepted to study abroad in Shanghai, China.
Family and Christian faith were at the center of Kasey’s life. She was active throughout her childhood and youth at Creekwood Christian Church of Flower Mound.
Kasey was bright, fun, sweet, full of life, and her natural beauty came from her heart. Her unforgettable and ever present smile lit up our world and will forever be in the hearts of all who knew her.
A memorial service is scheduled for Wednesday, March 26, 8:30pm, in Stillwater, OK on the Oklahoma State University campus, Willard Lawn.
On Friday, March 28, gathering for the funeral services will begin at 1:30pm, with services starting at 2:00pm at Trietsch Memorial United Methodist Church, 6101 Morriss Rd, Flower Mound, TX 75028. The reception will follow, then private graveside services at Flower Mound Cemetery.
