Staci Rosche Obituary: Dr. Staci L., 45, of Omaha, lost her relentless battle with cancer

Omaha, Nebraska – Dr. Staci L. Rosche (Lamberty), born on August 6, 1978, to Roger and Charleen (Hakel) Rosche in Columbus, Nebraska, led a remarkable life dedicated to academic excellence, sports achievements, and healing through psychiatry. Staci’s journey began at Scotus Central Catholic High School, where she excelled in basketball, volleyball, and track. Graduating with honors in 1997, she marked her high school years with contributions to multiple state championship teams.

Kj Wingert shared Staci Rosche’s death news on facebook and wrote,

“One of my hero’s went home to God today, and it is breaking my heart. I can’t stop the tears. Your hero’s are supposed to be there forever. Love you Staci Rosche and I’ll never forget everything you taught me, not just in volleyball, but in life, from making me play the ‘race you up the net’ game where you de-panted me in front of the entire open gym, to the ‘calm down, you’re fine’ to having another ‘very sweaty’ friend. Whether you knew it or not, I wanted to be just like you. I loved your grit, humor, and dedication. I will never understand this. We will miss you my friend. Can’t wait to play a pick up game with you again someday. Until we meet again, goodbye my hero.”

Following her passion for sports and academics, Staci pursued her education at Briar Cliff University. She made her mark as a four-year starter in volleyball, achieving All-American and Academic All-American honors. Her excellence on the court earned her the title of team MVP for four consecutive years. Staci graduated summa cum laude in 2001, and her legacy in sports was later acknowledged with her induction into the Briar Cliff Athletic Hall of Fame in 2005.

Dr. Staci L. Rosche furthered her education at the University of Nebraska College of Medicine, where she earned her Doctor of Medicine in 2005. Specializing in psychiatry, she completed her board certification in 2010, showcasing her dedication to mental health. Her time at the University of Nebraska College of Medicine and Lasting Hope Recovery Center garnered her numerous awards, a testament to her commitment and expertise recognized by both peers and patients.

After an enriching tenure at Lasting Hope, Staci ventured into private practice, quickly establishing her clinic and achieving substantial success. On May 16, 2009, she married Bob Lamberty at Christ the King Church in Omaha, and together they raised two sons, Kam (12) and Sam (8), who were her guiding light and purpose in life.

Sadly, on September 19, 2023, Staci lost her valiant battle with cancer. Her departure left a void in the hearts of those who knew and loved her. She is preceded in death by her father, Roger Rosche, grandparents Harry Rosche, Rudy Hakel, and Gertrude Hakel, as well as in-laws Larry and Elaine Lamberty, and aunt Joanie Rosche.

Staci is survived by her loving husband Bob, her cherished sons Kam and Sam, parents Bruce and Charleen Ebner, brothers Matthew Rosche and Mitchell (Megan) Ebner, sister Natalie (Jason) Christofferson, brother-in-law Ben (Elizabeth) Lamberty, grandmother Betty Rosche, six nephews, one niece, and numerous aunts and uncles.

To honor Staci’s memory and passion for psychiatry, a visitation celebrating her life will take place at St. Wenceslaus Catholic Church on September 26th from 4-7pm, followed by a vigil service at 7pm. A memorial mass will be held at St. Wenceslaus Catholic Church at 10:30am on September 27, followed by a fellowship luncheon.
