Sharon Lynn Hamann (nee Blasing), age 50, of Watertown, left the loving arms of her family on Saturday, September 21, 2013 to rise up into the arms of Jesus.

Sharon was born the third of five daughters to Lyle and Diane (nee Callies) Blasing on April 13, 1963. Sharon attended Watertown Senior High, class of 1981, where, in the ninth grade, she met and fell in love with Todd Robert Hamann. They were joined in marriage on September 21, 1985.

She worked many jobs but loved none more than being a mom. The moment Sharon became a mom was the happiest day of her life. She doted and adored her two daughters and she let the whole world know it. You could find her cheering the loudest from the bleachers at the girls sporting events or passing her phone to show you the latest pictures of them. Sharon was the girls’ biggest fan, supporter and best friend through every obstacle. She was always the life of the party. Her smile, charisma and laughter would light up any room and it was hard to find someone who did not enjoy her presence. Her obvious love for her family will never be forgotten or lost as you can see from one of her last posts, “28 years ago Todd and I tied the knot! We've been having the time of lives and are so blessed with good family and friends:) Todd, YER STILL THE ONE BABY!!! Here's to many more years together and even more great memories to be made” Her love and spirit will live on in those who loved her.

Sharon is survived by the love of her life, Todd Robert Hamann, adored daughters Paige (Jackson “Adonis” Urso) Hamann and Olivia (Austen Wolf) Hamann, parents Lyle and Diane Blasing of Wautoma, WI, parents-in-law Robert and Dianne Hamann of Watertown, WI, sisters Jan Blasing, Julie (Gerard) Koenig and Sandra (Mark) VanBeem, brother-in-law Travis (Emily) Hamann, nieces and nephews, Jackson and Gracie Hamann, James Dehnert Jr., Andrew (Becca) Melchior, Kayla Seibert, Aaron Scherer, Vicki VanBeem and Jeff (Brandi) VanBeem, great nieces and nephews, Preslee and Brentley VanBeem and Riley Jo Corrao. Sharon is also survived by companion canine Miss Molly DuBear, along with many other relatives and friends.
She was preceded in death by her infant sister Peggy Sue Blasing, maternal and paternal grandparents, niece Heather Mullen and nephew Joseph Seibert.

A service to celebrate Sharon’s life and to cherish the remembrance of her will be held 2:00 p.m., on Sunday Oct. 13, 2013 at Ebenezer Moravian Church with the Rev. Jane Wegner officiating. Visitation will be held on Sat. Oct. 12, 2013 from 1-5 p.m. at the Pederson-Nowatka Funeral Home and at the church on Sunday 1:00 p.m. until the time of the service.

Pederson-Nowatka Funeral Home is caring for the family. To place an on-line condolence or to light a candle in her memory please visit
