Syens, Gladys "GiGi"

RANDOLPH - Gladys Syens, age 90, of Randolph, went home to her Lord and Savior on Tuesday, Nov. 24, 2020, at Randolph Health Services.

Gladys was born on April 2, 1930, in Sanborn, Iowa, the daughter of Harry and Katherine (Navis) Elgersma. Her family moved to Wisconsin when she was 11, and a few short years later she met the love of her life, her husband Cliff. On May 28, 1948, she and Cliff were united in marriage and spent 65 year together until his passing.

Gladys worked tirelessly raising six children and working at Educator's Progress Service and Jung's Seed Company, both in Randolph. She was very family oriented and loved spending time with her children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren. She may have appeared quiet on the outside, but her playful, teasing side came out with her grandchildren. She was well-known for her cream puffs, and they were the highlight of every bake sale and potluck. She also enjoyed making pies for family and friends. Gladys was also active in her church, having taught Sunday school for many, many years, and as a member of various "ladies" organizations.

Gladys is survived by her children, Robert Syens of Orlando, Fla., James C. (Debra) Syens of Randolph, Nancy (Terry) Godfrey of Madison, Rick (Tracy) Syens of Libertyville, Ill., and Candice (Randy) Miller of Richfield; 10 grandchildren, Matt (Annie), Angie (Steve), Claire (Spencer), Sarah, Adrian, Hayleigh, Noah, Hunter, Brent and Lexi; and three great-grandchildren, Will, Piper and Asher. She is also survived and greatly missed by nieces, nephews, other relatives and friends.

Gladys was preceded in death by her husband, Cliff; a son, Leslie Syens; parents, brothers and sisters.

A private family service will take place with burial at the Randolph Cemetery. Randolph Community Funeral Home is assisting the family. Condolences may be made to Jim Syens, 403 Tamarack Street, Randolph, WI 53956.
