Stacie Thoma

Stacie K. Thoma, 37, of Columbia, died Sept. 2, 2018, at St. Anthony’s Medical Center, St. Louis, from injuries sustained in a car crash.

She was born April 10, 1981, in Kirkwood, Mo., daughter of Robert (Gail) Thoma of Columbia and the late Denise Thoma (nee Grob).

Stacie earned her Bachelor of Arts from Webster University, Webster Groves, Mo. She had a unique sense of humor, quick wit, infectious laugh and was incredibly creative.

She was a lover of animals, eclectic foods, comedic music and terrible TV shows. She loved to sing and act, singing in church and acting in a few plays in Columbia, most recently the “Wizard of Oz” and “Steel Magnolias.”

She was the “loving and silly” aunt to five nieces and nephews — Jonathan and William DuVall, and Samuel, Lillian and Benjamin (whom she referred to as “Ben Jammin”) Thoma.

She will be missed by her family and friends, and her group at the YMCA, where she enjoyed “working out.”

Surviving are her father; sister Stephanie (Jeremy) DuVall of Waterloo, and brother Scott (Karen) Thoma of Weldon Spring, Mo.; niece Lillian Thoma; nephews Samuel and Benjamin Thoma, and Jonathan and William DuVall; along with aunts, uncles, and cousins, other relatives and friends.
