Uryasz, Ann Marie "Peach" April 30, 1933 - June 14, 2019 Ann Marie Uryasz died peacefully at home on June 14, 2019, with her devoted husband of 66 years and their family present. Born on April 30, 1933, in Omaha, Ann was soon given the nickname "Peach" by an older cousin and from that point on, even her closest friends couldn't tell you her given name. Born to Francis "Frank" J. Welsh and Theresa K. "Tess" Welsh (n�e Mulvihill), Peach grew up in the shadow of Omaha's St. Cecilia Cathedral, attended Cathedral Grade School and Cathedral High School, and Duchesne College. Peach and Frank were long-time parishioners of St. Bernard Catholic Church, and later St. Vincent de Paul Catholic Church. Peach enjoyed her work for the Catholic Cemeteries of the Omaha Archdiocese, especially her time at Holy Sepulchre Cemetery where she was equally adept at consoling grieving families or, on a rainy day, beating the maintenance guys at a game or two of "knock poker." A long-time Omaha funeral director noted that "Peach made coming to the Cemetery fun." Peach was preceded in death by her parents, Frank and Tess Welsh; her brother and sister-in-law, Robert F. and Margaret Welsh; her sister and brother-in-law, Mary Lou and Gerald Sharkey; and infant sister Kathryn Ellen Welsh. Peach is survived by her husband Frank D. Uryasz Jr.; their children: Nancy Uryasz and Greg Fennessey, Julie Uryasz and Carol Garey, Frank D. III and Ann J. Uryasz, and Steve and Margie Uryasz; also surviving are grandchildren: Justine (Ryan) Richard, Tim Uryasz, Michael (Lauren) Uryasz, Claire (James) Harris, and Christopher Uryasz; and great-grandchildren, William Uryasz and Caroline Uryasz. Peach leaves behind many friends, caretakers, nieces, nephews and cousins, including niece Sue Welsh Parmenter whose medical advice and care for Peach added years to her life and life to her years. Peach's family is grateful for the excellent care she received from the staff at Remington Heights Assisted Living and Hillcrest Hospice. MASS of CHRISTIAN BURIAL will be held at 11:15am Tuesday, June 18, at St. Cecilia Cathedral, where Peach received the Sacraments and Married the love of her life on November 15, 1952. Lunch will follow the Funeral. Private Interment in Calvary Cemetery. Memorials may be made to St. Bernard Catholic Church and School, Sacred Heart School/CUES, St. Cecilia Cathedral, Marian High School, Creighton Preparatory School, or Hillcrest Hospice. John A.
