    My daughter married into the Beranek clan, which meant I in turn was fortunate enough to get to know Lucille, Dennis, and the family.

    Lucille was a terrific wife, mom, grandma, and great-grandma whose generosity of spirit and action was always evident. She will be missed and celebrated by all who knew and loved her.

    I am so saddened by this news. “Grandma Beranek” was the kindest soul ever! Whenever we would see each other, we would always have a hug and a kiss on each cheek. I pray for strength for “Grandpa Beranek” and the whole Beranek family. May God wrap his arms around each of you during this difficult time.
    Love, Angie (Lutz) Ubel

    I wish to express my sympathy for the entire Beranek family. Lucille was a very good neighbor and family friend. I will always remember how my mom and her cleaned the Memphis school together and enjoyed each other’s company. I’m wishing you God’s peace at this time. Kim and Larry Houfek

    My deepest sympathy to the family and to Denny. My heart aches for him. I took care of Denny & Lucille at their Dr’s office and grew to become very fond of them. You could see the love they had for each other & how one worried so much about the other. My thoughts and prayers go out to you all. And Denny, a special prayer for you for peace and love. I hope you get to read this!

    My deepest sympathy to the Beranek family. Being our closest neighbors on the farm, we got to know your Mom & Dad so well. Neighbors, but truly considered you all family. Your mom was always so calm and thoughtful. So many memories to hold close and share with one another. I know I have many of her myself. God be with you all and I pray for comfort and peace.

    Randy and I were classmates. I always remember looking up at the top of the bleachers in the gym, and there was Lucille and Dennis. They were amazing fans for Ashland.Always there not only to support their children, but the whole school.They showed the community what school pride and being proud of your children were all about. I am so sorry, she will not only be missed dearly from her loved ones, but our community also.

    I am so sorry for the loss of your Mother. She was like a second mother to all of us “Memphis Kids!” She always had a kind word when I would run into her and your Dad on my visits back to Nebraska. My thoughts and prayers are with you all!

    Aunt Lucille was always such a bright spot in my life. From when we were all little kids and we thought we were vacationing at our cousins house when really our Dad was there to help with the harvest! We would play army in the yard with a low spot in the yard that was our bunker, playing in a real barn to tossing rotten eggs to one another to see who it would break on with such great adventure and laughter. The food she made was such a treat, especially her fried chicken! The relationship between Denny and Lucille was one to be admired…we saw those love pats you would give her with that sparkle in your eye Denny and the pat on the arm she would give you back with that same sparkle. Such a long time you were together as man and wife. She will be missed by many and welcomed into Heaven with open arms by her siblings! So many memories…I love you Aunt Lucille. Vicki Dahl-Agro
