Evelyn Anna Schmerber


Evelyn Anna (Hamman) Schmerber, age 92 quietly entered into eternal rest on July 21, 2018.

She was born on Feb. 15, 1926 in Seattle, Wash. to John Edmond Floyd, Jr. and Selma Alida Sjursen and later had a little brother, Don.

Evelyn moved from Washington with her parents to Pima Ariz. and later to Globe, Ariz. While attending high school in Pima she met her first husband, Wayne Jr. Hamman. They married and had three children, Sherry, Susan and Dusty. After divorcing, she met her second husband, Louis J. Schmerber, and they were married on Jan. 4, 1969. Louie had his own business later down the road, Schmerber’s Plumbing, and mom was a strict secretary for him. With a second marriage in tow, there were two more children from Louie’s first marriage, Jay and Patty Lou.

She was preceded in death by her husbands, Wayne Jr. Hamman and Louis J. Schmerber; her parents John and Selma; a brother Don Floyd (Tempe) and a son Dusty Wayne Hamman.

She is survived by her daughters, Sherry (J.D. deceased) Smith of Globe and Susan (Frank) Miller of Globe; stepson, Jay (Wanda) Schmerber; step-daughter Patty Lou; sister-in-law Vonda Floyd (Tempe); grandchildren Stephanie (Jeff) Coleman, of Chandler, Amber (Louie) Martinez, of Globe, Stacie Villalobos of Globe, Justin (Jamie) Roark, of Nevada, Dusti Fansler, of Globe, Jason Hamman, of New Mexico, Tiffany Hamman (deceased), Aaron Schmerber and Sarah Williams. She had many great- and great-great-grandchildren and nieces and nephews whom she loved very much and enjoyed their visits.

We would like to thank all who helped take care of our mom, Maria and Angel (Angel Home Care), all employees of Aviant Hospice, you were all a blessing and thank you.

Per mom’s wishes, she did not want funeral services, only graveside services at Pima Cemetery at a later date.

Mom we will miss you so very much but know in our hearts you were tired and ready to go home to the other loved ones you missed dearly. Until we are together again, you will be in our thoughts and prayers every day.

Assisting the family, Lamont Mortuary of Globe.
