Sharon Louise Wood-Chesnut was one of those people friends knew they could turn to during times of difficulty. An Oklahoma City native, the 47-year-old Wood-Chesnut grew up in the Del City area and obtained a business degree before moving to Louisiana. She later returned to her hometown to work in the Social Security office, where she was known as a friendly, cheerful person who worked well with people. She was a member of Christ Lutheran Church, where she served in several capacities, particularly those which required a good worker, planner or director. Wood-Chesnut had a daughter, Nikki Chesnut, and two stepchildren, Lonny Chesnut of Lafayette, La., and Laurie O’Field of Houston, Texas.
