Patricia "Trisha" Ann (Bieger) Haussler was a loving daughter, sister, aunt, and friend. She left this world
peacefully with her niece, Shawna Bieger, by her side on November 7, 2023, at age 71, in Oklahoma City,
She was born to Joseph and Edna "Laverne" Bieger on December 15, 1951 in Baltimore, Maryland. She
moved to Oklahoma City at age 5 with her family. She spent most of her free time traveling the United
States with her mother and siblings. Trisha was a woman of many words and silly jokes. She enjoyed
making anyone around her feel welcome and leave smiling.
Trisha graduated from Capitol Hill High School in Oklahoma City, in 1970 with Honors. She excelled in
mathematics and lettered in girls' sports. She attended college at St. Gregory's College in Shawnee, OK
in 1972 with an Associate Degree in Math, Cum Laude, and lettered in women's varsity sports. She
continued her education at Southwestern Oklahoma State University (SWOSO), Weatherford, OK in 1974
with a Bachelor of Science in Math, Summa Cum Laude, and lettered in women's varsity sports.
She used her love of mathematics to become a teacher from 1974 to 1980 in Kansas. She taught junior
high and high school math. During these years she also coached the pom squad, was assistant coach to
the girls' volleyball team, and was the official scorekeeper in boys' wrestling.
She returned to Oklahoma City in 1982 to attend OSU-OKC College for a certification in Computer
Programming, which she received in 1985. She worked for a couple of contractors before finding her
long-term career as a Computer Programmer of 14 years from 1996 to 2010 with a contractor at Tinker
In 2011, she became disabled and spent her time growing as an individual and volunteering at the senior
complex where she lived until her passing. Trisha loved spending her time with her family, learning,
crafting, and helping others. You would rarely find her without a smile. If she was not learning or coloring
art pages, she was playing games. She was extremely active with her younger great-niece, Adalyn
Witten, and great-nephew, Christian Witten, she would read with them, help with their math homework,
discuss their recent sports plays, or tell them about her younger days!
She was such a warm soul to be around. Trisha gave hugs like a mother, kept secrets like a sister, and
shared love like a friend. She is joining her mother, grandparents, and those who preceded her in death
awaited her arrival, and have now been joyously reunited. We hope you know that you may be gone but
this is not a goodbye but a see you later and love you always.
