Linda M. Hamus

December 30, 1957 – December 3, 2021

Linda M. Hamus, 63, Auburndale, entered the arms of her Lord & Savior, Jesus Christ, Friday, December 3rd, 2021, at Marshfield Medical Center, Marshfield.

Private Services for Linda’s immediate family will be held at 3:00 pm on December 23, 2021, at Hansen-Schilling Funeral Home in Marshfield (1010 E. Veterans Pkwy.).  The family would like to thank you for respecting their wishes and privacy during this time.  The funeral service will also be live streamed on the funeral homes’ website at 3:00 pm ( 

Linda was born December 30, 1957, the eldest of four children of Raymond and Bonnie (Zimmermann) Altman.  She was raised in Auburndale and was a 1976 graduate of Auburndale High School.  She was united in marriage to the love of her life, John R. Hamus, on September 25, 1976, in Hewitt.

Linda passionately worked in the medical field for nearly 30 years.  After her retirement from patient care, she assisted John with his masonry business.

Linda was a very caring, loving and devoted wife, mother and grandmother.  She was extremely proud of her family.  She always put God first in her life and was a faithful Christian woman.  She had a heart of a servant, if you had a need she tried to help (expecting nothing in return).  Linda committed to studying the Bible and spreading the word of the Lord.  She enjoyed listening to Christian radio, spending quality time with her family and talking with her friends. Some of her other hobbies were crocheting, knitting, gardening and canning.

Linda is lovingly survived by her husband of 45 years, John and their two children, Gwendolyn (Greg Busse) Hamus of Marshfield and Perry (Christine) Hamus of Auburndale.  She is also survived by five granddaughters, Emily Jackson, Kyra (Mike) Retherford, Tayla Hamus, Zaylee Hamus and Ezlyn Hamus.  She is further survived by her three brothers, Gary (Patty) Altman, Tom (Jacky) Altman and Russell (Cheryl) Altman and nieces and nephews.

She was preceded in death by both of her parents.

Linda always trusted in God’s will, His perfect plan and His timing.  She would want everyone to know that Jesus died to pay the penalty for our sins, allowing us to have eternal peace with Him in heaven.  “We are made right in God’s sight when we trust in Jesus Christ to take away our sins.  And we all can be saved in the same way, no matter who we are or what we have done.”  Romans 3:22 (NLT) For a better understanding please read the Gospel of John. 

“You never said I’m leaving, you never said goodbye. You were gone before we knew it, and only God knew why. A million times we needed you, a million times we cried. If love alone could have saved you, you never would have died. In life we loved you dearly, in death we love you still. In our hearts you hold a place that no one could ever fill. It broke our hearts to lose you, but you didn’t go alone. For part of us went with you, the day God took you home.” Author Unknown.

She will be greatly missed by all who knew and loved her.  Now she is in God’s arms, but will forever be in our hearts.
