Edward Adamski

February 15, 1943 — December 15, 2020


Edward J. Adamski, of Wausau, Wisconsin returned home to God on Tuesday December 15, 2020 at the age of 77.  Born February 15th, 1943 to Joseph Adamski and Pearl Adamski (Michalski).  He married in October of 1963 to Harriet Adamski (Hannemann).  Harriet was the love of his life and together they raised four children.  Edward dedicated over forty years of his life to Wausau Paper until he retired in 2008.  Ed was an avid crafter, fisherman, gardener and animal lover.  He enjoyed taking road trips, tinkering in the garage and watching movies.  His wife, Harriet, said he could fix anything she asked of him.  He loved cooking and baking with his wife too.  Although, what he loved most of all was his family.  He is survived by his wife, Harriet Adamski (Hannemann), sister Virginia Krueger (Tom), four children: Rose Polster (Rick), Joe Adamski (Sharon), Christine McKinnon (Todd), and Mike Adamski (Keith).  His three grandchildren: Ryan Polster (Bethany), Rylee Polster (Kong), and Justin Schmitz (Caitlin).  He was never seen without his plaid shirt and suspenders.  Even on Sundays at Saint Anne’s church, he could be seen wearing his plaid shirt.  He will be remembered as a fighter, protector, loving son, brother, husband, father, and friend.  His favorite saying “it is what it is” will forever ring in our ears.  A private celebration of life will be held at a later date.  Helke Funeral Home is assisting the family with the arrangements; you may sign our family guestbook at

Sincere gratitude goes to the doctors, nurses and health care workers who have compassionately cared for Edward.
