Amy Marie (Vojtech) Beran

After a courageous 18-month battle with cancer, Amy M. Beran (50 years old), passed away on September 7, 2018 at her home in Sachse, Texas surrounded by her loving family.
Amy was born on March 26, 1968 in Fremont, NE to Joe and Mignon (Kammerer) Vojtech. She grew up in Fremont and had the privilege of attending Archbishop Bergan High School where she graduated in 1986. While there she had the joy of going to school with her sister, Tanya, having her father as a teacher, playing the flute in the band, being on the drill team, singing in swing choir, and watching her father coach her future husband in football.
Amy attended the University of Nebraska-Lincoln where she graduated in 1990 with a degree in Speech Communications with a minor in Business. She later worked in Human Resource positions, being a caregiver through home healthcare, and enjoyed her long-time role as a Mary Kay Cosmetics Consultant.
Amy married her high school sweetheart, Steve Beran, on June 9, 1990. After college graduation they started their lives together in Lenexa, Kansas where their family grew with the births of their two sons, Zach in 1994, and Nathan in 1995. They were fortunate to eventually move back home to Nebraska in 1997 where she enjoyed being active in her church St. Vincent De Paul Parish as a cantor and other volunteer activities. Steve and Amy moved to Sachse, Texas in 2014.
Being active in her boys’ lives was very important to Amy. She was an active volunteer at school activities and functions and was President of the Skutt Band Booster Club. Amy was a volunteer for MDA, Special Olympics, St. Vincent DePaul Society, and Salvation Army. She enjoyed participating in her Beta Sigma Phi Sorority in both Nebraska and Texas. She also loved participating and leading Bible Study groups in Nebraska and Texas.
Survivors include husband,Steve Beran of Sachse, TX; sons, Zach Beran of Columbia, MO and Nathan Beran of Omaha, NE; parents, Joe and Mignon Vojtech of Omaha; sister, Tanya Hoham of Lincoln, NE.
Amy was a beloved aunt to her two nieces (Taryn Hoham and Savanna Beran) and her five nephews: Tyler Hoham, Lincoln and Creighton Small, and Jack and Noah Beran. She was dearly loved by all of her aunts, uncles, cousins, in-laws, and extended family.
The family will receive friends on Thursday, Sept. 13th from 5pm to 7pm at the West Center Chapel, followed by VIGIL SERVICE at 7pm. MASS OF CHRISTIAN BURIAL: Friday, Sept. 14th at 10:30am at St. Vincent de Paul Catholic Church, 14330 Eagle Run Drive. Celebrants will be Rev. Dan Kampschneider and Amy’s cousin, Rev. Nathan Hall.

Love and prayers for the family.
The loss of someone dear to us is devastating. The Bible aptly describes death as “The last enemy” (1 Corinthians 15:26) and robs us of those we hold dear. Please know that God feels your pain. (Psalms 55:22; 1Peter 5:7) He misses people who have died and keeps them in his memory. (Job 14:13-15) Soon, in the future, God has promised to resurrect those we have lost in death, (Isaiah 26:19; John 5:28,29) how wonderful that time will be when we can embrace our loved ones again,in a perfect earth, and death will be no more! (Revelation 21:4)
