Gladys L. Schaumberg, age 93, of Seymour passed away on February 2, 2022 at Country Villa in Freedom. She was born on January 6, 1929, daughter of the late Fredrick and Frances (Windel) Wagner.
Gladys was united in marriage to Gerald Schaumberg on October 15, 1949. He preceded her in death on October 14, 2017. The couple had seven children and celebrated nearly 68 years together.
Gladys was a member of St. John Catholic Church, Seymour and a member of the Christian Mothers.
As a young girl she played softball with her team in Isaar, played on the Seymour Cardinals Girls Softball team (they were one of the top teams in 1949) and continued playing for many years. Gladys also bowled in the women's league and the couples league.
She was a devoted farm wife and mother, having grown up on a farm in Isaar and raising her family on a dairy farm near Seymour. Gladys was active with the Farm Bureau as a judge for June Dairy Month.
Gladys like to travel, having gone to many places throughout the United States and visiting Mexico, England, Spain, Ireland, Norway, and Africa.
One of her favorite places was at the family cottage, "Schaumberg's Shawano Shore", where she liked to play cards, take pontoon rides, and visit with family and friends.
She was known as the "Cookie Grandma" as she loved to cook and bake for the family. The entire family looked forward to her home-cooked meals with fresh bread and baked chicken, along with all the wonderful food she canned. Her family was very important to her, and each of us will miss her dearly.
