Deanna Lynn Zach was called home to be with her Lord on July 15, 2022.
Deanna was born March 11, 1948, in Omaha, Nebraska to Edward and Beatrice “Elaine” (Steinhoff) Zach. She was the first of eleven children. She had five brothers and five sisters. She graduated high school at Bergen Mercy in Fremont, Nebraska. Deanna was a hard worker and very well liked at Western Electric for many years and then she later retired from ATT.
Deanna was always extremely close to her family. She loved her nieces and nephews as if they were her own. "Auntie Dee” or “Nana” as she was lovingly known by so many people, spent much of her life being a “second mother” to her many nieces and nephews. She showered them with love, special “dates” with Auntie Dee, gifts, endless crafts and activities, and unwavering support. Her love for her many nieces and nephews was always boundless and immeasurable. She spent many years in children's ministry, giving generously of both her time and resources. She was someone who used her limited resources to bless others with a kind and generous spirit. She impacted so many that were not her own. Deanna will be remembered by those she loved as kind, caring, and generous.
Deanna joins her parents, Ed & Elaine Zach, and her brother, Mike Zach, in heaven with their Lord. She is survived by her sister-in-law, Cheryl; her sister Renee and her husband Tom; her brother Mark and his wife Peggy; her sister Mary and her husband Bill; her sister Nola and her husband Dennis; her sister Nancy and her husband Armand; her brother Dave and his wife Marsha; her brother Rod and his wife Barb; her brother Chuck and Sherri; and her sister Sonya and her husband Barney. She also has 40 nieces and nephews and 46 great nieces and great nephews– soon to be 49.
