August 18, 1951 - August 3, 2020
Theresa Yvonne Geldard Stearns, 68, died peacefully at her home with her husband by her side on Monday, August 3, 2020. Theresa was born August 18, 1951 in Havre, Montana to Alice Marie Geldard and Harry William Geldard. Theresa was the fourth born of seven children. Her siblings included Chuck, Carol, Judy, Mickey, Nancy, and Rita. She attended Havre School and graduated in 1970. She attended the University of Montana and graduated with a Bachelors in Business Administration. Fresh out of college, she served as an accountant at Marine Drilling before serving as the Chief Financial Officer at the Interstate Grain Corporation in Corpus Christi, TX where she retired in 2016. She married Verlin (Vic) Glenn Stearns II on August 13, 1977 in Corpus Christi, TX. The couple made their home and raised one son together there prior to moving to Edmond, OK in 2018. Theresa was quite the socialite! She was a member of Saint Pius X in Corpus Christi, TX. Along with being an active member of her congregation, she and her husband sent their son to school at this fine institution. Theresa also enjoyed crocheting and sewing, bowling, bunco, sorority, NASCAR races, shopping, gardening, doll collecting and Texas A&M football. But of all the things she enjoyed most, being with her son was her most favorite thing of all. She took great pride in being a mother and fiercely loved her son, Verlin (Trey) Glenn Stearns III. Theresa was quick to help when anyone was in need. Her laughter filled the room and her smile would brighten your day. In 2009 she became a Grandmother and was actively involved in their lives. She handmade each grandchild a crocheted blanket and would often sew fancy dresses for her granddaughter. She was preceded in death by her parents, one brother and three sisters. Theresa is survived by her husband of forty-five years, Verlin Stearns II of Traverse City, Michigan. Her son, Verlin Stearns III of Edmond, OK and her six grandchildren. A private family Mass of Christian Burial will be held to remember and celebrate Theresa's life at St. Monica Catholic Church in Edmond, OK, on a later date yet to be determined. Burial will take place following Mass at Memorial Park Cemetery in Oklahoma City, OK. Please check back soon for a full obituary.
