Beckman, Amy M.

Beckman, Amy Marie. Amy passed away Sunday, August 31st at home. She was born December 26, 1959 in Cleveland, Ohio to John and Rosemary Beckman. Raised in Dallas, Amy graduated from W. T. White High School before her lifelong love of art led her at age 33 to pursue a degree in studio art from the Meadows School of the Arts at SMU. Upon graduating, she honed her passion for ceramics through an internship with Totten Tile Works in Winlock, Washington, where she remained with the company for seven years. She returned to Dallas in 2004 where she continued her association with SMU, teaching occasionally and maintaining her passion and boundless inspiration for the art form she cherished. Amy's second passion, books, also led her to a career at Half-Price Books. Although brief, she spoke with heartfelt gratitude of her position and the people she grew to love. She was a fiercely loyal daughter, sister and friend. Open and direct in her communications, few were left wondering where they stood with her. She loved animals, resale shops and sunny days at White Rock Lake but her perfect day would be spent laughing and making pottery with her niece and nephews whom she adored. Amy believed in God and she led a spiritual life of profound courage, rigorous honesty and grace. She will be missed for a lifetime. Amy was preceded in death by her father John C. Beckman of Dallas. She is survived by her mother Rosemary Beckman of Dallas, brothers John Beckman of Garland and Tom Beckman of Dallas, sister Sue Reed and husband Dan Reed of Garland, nephews Charlie Reed of Arlington and Joe Reed of College Station, Texas and niece Katie Reed of State College, Penn. A service will be held at North Dallas Funeral Home, on the morning of Saturday, September 6, 2008 at eleven thirty. North Dallas Funeral Home 2710 Valley View Ln., Dallas,Texas 75234 972-241-9100.
