Gladys E. Hamus

Nov 19, 1925 - Nov 25, 2021


Gladys E. Hamus, age 96, of Sheboygan passed away early Thursday morning November 25, 2021. Gladys was born November 19, 1925 in Fond du Lac to the late Raymond and Myrtle (Smith) Hennen. She attended Sheboygan schools and graduated from Central High School. Gladys was united in marriage to Henry Hamus on June 10, 1944 at St. Peter Claver Catholic Church; he preceded her in death March 19, 2001. Prior to being a stay-at-home mom and raising her family, Gladys was employed at the H.C. Prange Co. Gladys enjoyed cooking, needlepoint, knitting, canning and in her earlier years archery and fishing.
She enjoyed supporting her children and grandchildren by attending their athletic events, concerts and theatrical productions.
Gladys was a caring, supportive and loving wife, mother, grandmother and great-grandmother. She was quiet and unassuming and always saw the best in everyone.
She was a homemaker in the true sense of the word. She devoted her life to nurturing her daughters and caring for her husband. She taught her family what is truly important in life, to love, support and care for family and friends. Gladys instilled confidence in her children and grandchildren by her unconditional love.
The family would like to extend their gratitude to all the volunteers at Meals on Wheels for their companionship. Also, sincere thanks to all the staff at Gables on the Pond in Random Lake for providing Gladys with endless hours of companionship, dignity, and compassionate care with unwavering dedication.
Thank you to the staff of Sharon S. Richardson and Sheboygan Memorial Medical Center for your compassionate care in her final days.

Please accept my sincere sympathy in the passing of your mother. I only knew her from sitting near her at mass at St. Peter Claver. She was such a sweet lady. I wish I had gotten to know her. I think we would have enjoyed being friends. What a great long life! Celebrate it well. A mother's love is with you always. SPC Human Concerns, Pat Grams

Mary and Julie, I am so very sorry for the loss of your mother. I remember as a little girl coming over and visiting your parents. Those are memories that I still cherish. Your parents were some of the kindest people I have ever known. My parents are LeRoy and Marcy Sachse. May they be reunited once again. Take care. Jill Samse

Barb Heller
