Full lives cut short: Omaha victims' families mourn losses


Of the 30 or so local stories, this is the third I have posted. I don't plan on posting many.

Full lives cut short: Omaha victims' families mourn losses
BY NICHOLE AKSAMIT
WORLD-HERALD STAFF WRITER

The shooter's thin face is not the one the victims' families and friends want to see this day.

Through tears and heartache, they're remembering:

Angie Schuster, the 36-year-old beauty who loved children, her work in the girls department at Von Maur and her fiance, who planned to give her a ring for Christmas.


Kymi Johnson Rutledge, left, and Courtney Hinze mourn the Von Maur shooting victims during a prayer service Thursday evening at Christ Community Church. About 65 people attended the service in the church at 404 S. 108th Ave.


And Gary Joy, the 56-year-old janitor who wrote poetry and stories in his spare time.

And the fun and caring Beverly Flynn a 47-year-old mom who gave rosebushes to her real estate clients and who worked as a gift-wrapper at Von Maur for the holidays because she loved Christmas.

And Dianne Clavin Trent, 53, who put her people skills from her years as an airline flight attendant to work as a customer service representative.

1. As a former Omahan, I know this tragedy is a deep wound to the community.
It's almost unbelievable that something like this could happen at the Westroads, a place I've been to hundreds of times since it opened.

I've been watching and commiserating with some close Omaha friends cope with the murder of a family member (Tracy Gostomski) and can imagine even more than most outsiders what the folks in Omaha are going through.

Here's hoping that time will heal this wound and all I can do is give my condolences to the families and friends of the victims.
