Temple L. Gladmon

Former singer, athlete

Temple L. Gladmon, a retired federal security officer, professional singer and baseball player, died Thursday of heart failure at the Southern Maryland Hospital in Clinton.

He was 92 and had lived in West Baltimore before moving to

Upper Marlboro about two years ago.

He retired in the late 1960s from the Social Security Administration. Earlier, he worked in Baltimore for the Department of Commerce. He also was cited for capturing two fugitives while off duty.

Born in Baltimore, he attended City College. During World War I, he served in France with a trench mortar battery of the 42nd Rainbow Division. He was awarded a Purple Heart and a Silver Star after being gassed and shot.

His singing, which included operas in three languages, was noted in a history of the Rainbow Division. He later sang professionally as a baritone with church choirs in Baltimore and for a year with the Metropolitan Opera in New York.

He also played minor league baseball, moving up to the International League Orioles in 1920. But his career as a pitcher was ended when he broke his shoulder playing football with a semi-professional team.

His first wife, the former Edith Louise Grieves, died in 1956. His second wife, the former Sue Tucker, died nearly 20 years ago.

Services for Mr. Gladmon were to be conducted at noon today at the Leroy M. and Russell C. Witzke Funeral Home, 1630 Edmondson Ave. in Catonsville.

He is survived by his son, William T. Gladmon of Upper Marlboro; three grandchildren and five great-grandchildren.

She also taught at schools in Philadelphia and in Tampa, Fla. From 1952 until 1953, while she was still a candidate in the order, she taught at the Institute of Notre Dame in East Baltimore.

A native of Teaneck, N.J., she was a graduate of Holy Angels Academy in Fort Lee, N.J. In 1952, she graduated from the College of Notre Dame of Maryland where she majored in sociology with minors in English and history before entering the order.

A Mass of Christian burial for Sister Anne Marie was to be offered at 10 a.m. today in the chapel of Villa Assumpta, 6401 N. Charles St.

She is survived by a brother, Henry F. Schaf; and a sister, Frances S. Schuelen. Both are of Dumont, N.J.
