Preceded in death by father, Donald Beeman; sister-in-law, Karen Beeman. Survived by husband, Mark; children: Kyle, Evan, and Emma Pane; mother, Barbara Beeman; brothers: Russell, John (Pat), Rick (Lisa), and Robert (Sheryl) Beeman; sister, Darlene Kaminski; sisters-in-law and brothers-in-law: Tony Pane, Angie Waples (Tom), Jerrie Hover, Mary Jo Pane, Lu Anne Pane, Joe Pane (Micki); nieces and nephews: Kendra Ripberger, Chrissy Hilberer, Michelle Defant, John Beeman, Carrie Trinkle, Michael Vargo, Matt, Erich and Andrew Hover, Joe and Dan Pane, Allison Guiney and Teddy Pane, Alex and Adam Pane; many other loving relatives and friends.

Lisa (Beeman) Pane was born in Jackson, Michigan, and grew up in nearby Chelsea, Michigan, with her parents and five brothers and sisters.  She epitomized quiet strength and compassion.  Others always came first with her.  Whether it was with family, friends, or the many hundreds of kids she taught over a 30-year teaching career with Omaha Public Schools, Lisa was the most selfless person you could imagine.  Lisa loved to give, and she never asked for, nor would accept anything in return.  She was also a peacemaker.  In any family disagreement, Lisa never involved herself, and always wanted everyone to get along, as she didn’t have a spiteful bone in her body. 

Lisa received her bachelor’s degree from Eastern Michigan University, and it was during her time in Ypsilanti that she was introduced to her future husband, Mark Pane, through her sister-in-law, Karen Beeman.  At the time Mark was working for the University of Michigan Athletic Department, and though at the time they didn’t know how long they’d be together, eventually Lisa moved to Omaha, Nebraska, and they were married in 1992, while starting her teaching career and eventually obtaining her master’s degree from UNO.  She had a passion for teaching and for her students and she always became emotional when former students would come back to visit her, taking great pride in their successes in life.  

Lisa was an extremely hard worker and did everything she could to provide for her family and, most importantly, give her children opportunities. Lisa went to every hockey game, practice, and dance recital, and supported each one of her children’s hobbies like it was her own. She loved cheering on her beloved Michigan Wolverines on fall Saturdays. Lisa also loved fostering her kid’s artistic talents, and, unbeknownst to many, she was an amazing artist in her own right, but chose to teach 3rd grade, remaining humble about her creativity and artistic ability.

Due to Creutzfeldt-Jakob Disease (CJD), Lisa was taken from us far too soon, but in her time on earth she made an impact on everyone she met.  She might not have been granted a long life, but the life she led was an inspiration to her family and friends, and the mark she made on us all will help us to cherish her memory.

The family wishes to give extra special thanks to Mark’s sisters, Angie, Lu and Mary,  for their loving care of Lisa that went over and above anything that was expected.

    I met Lisa over 20 years ago while she & the family were visiting the Beeman clan back in Chelsea. She was a very caring person & we hit it off right away, sharing some interesting conversations with some seriousness to them, but mostly laughter. I was saddened to hear of her diagnosis & passing. My heart goes out to Mark, Kyle, Evan & Emma & to all of her family. Gone too soon, but not forgotten. May the perpetual light shine upon her.

    Mrs. Pane was a life changing teacher. I cherish my memories as a student in her classroom was thankful for her mentorship when I started teaching. Sending so much love to your family.

    My memories of playing with Lisa when we were younger(both the youngest of 6 and cousins) are fond memories. She was always kind and funny. My thoughts and prayers for the Payne and Beeman family.

    Lisa was one of my closest childhood friends. She was so kind hearted, funny, hard working and determined. She was that friend who always stood for what she believed was right and didn’t give in to peer pressure. I’ll always cherish the memories we made. May God bless and bring comfort to both her Pane and Beeman families.

    Mark and kids,
    Lisa was one of my best friends in high school and after she moved to NE she always tried to meet up with me whenever she came back home. We will all miss her beautiful smile that lit up her face. She was giving soul and I know I will treasure our times together. I pray that you hold on to all the good memories. She always shared with me how much she loved and was proud of her kids. Live on and have a beautiful life and continue to make her proud. All my thoughts and prayers to your family, Kim Eder

    I had not kept up with Lisa since high school. It was so nice to read about Lisa’s amazing life. She played softball for my father and was always one of his favorites. My condolences to her family and friends.
