Georgia Helen Adamski
SPRINGFIELD - Georgia Helen Adamski, 82, of Springfield went to be with her Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, on Mother's Day, May 12, 2013.
Georgia was born June 4, 1930, in Detroit, MI, the daughter of Mary and George Hodge. She married William Adamski Jr. on July 14, 1950.
Georgia, a graduate of Lanphier High School, was a loving wife, mother and homemaker. She enjoyed gardening, travel, animals and cooking. In addition to many wonderful family meals and holiday dinners, her love of cooking was evident throughout her life. She served as the cook at Christian Nursery School and she volunteered her services for many years at Hope Evangelical Free Church and Lake Helen Bible Camp in Wausaukee, WI. Her last venture was as co-owner and creator of the Morning Star Café in Salisbury, IL, along with her husband and daughter, Pat. Many of the ideas and recipes were Georgia's inspiration and she worked tirelessly at the café from 1998-2012.
Georgia accepted Jesus Christ as her personal Lord and Savior as a young adult and followed Him her entire life. She was a member of Bethany Evangelical Lutheran Church until 1978 and then a member of Hope Evangelical Free Church until 2013.
She is survived by her husband, William; two daughters, Linda J. Painter and Patricia L. Adamski; two sons, Eric W. (Gail) Adamski and Robert J. (Laura) Adamski; ten grandchildren; four great-grandchildren; and several nieces and nephews.
