The family of Monica "Minnie" Dziadzio regretfully announces that she passed away on December 9, 2017 at the age of 95.
Monica was born on February 16, 1922 in Adams, the daughter of Jan and Mary Adamczyk. She grew up in a large family in the Polish American section of town. She attended St Stanislaus School, and was a communicant of St Stanislaus Church her entire life.
After graduation from St Stan's, Monica worked in the Berkshire Mills in Adams. She was active in the St Stan's Society, where she met her husband Stanley in 1946. They were excellent Polka dancers and attended dances that used to be held at the St Stan's Hall. Monica and Stanley married on June 7th, 1947 at St Stan's Church.
After her first child Chris was born, Monica worked "mother's hours" at Sprague Electric in North Adams. After a brief stint at Wall Streeter, she began working at GE in Pittsfield in 1964, retiring in 1984. She and her husband enjoyed traveling, attended Polka dances all over New England, and were active with the Adams Seniors Club and St Stan's Church. Monica was happiest when she was surrounded by family and friends.
Monica is predeceased by her husband of 53 years, Stanley, her parents Jan and Mary, her brothers Frank and Walter Adamczyk, and her sisters Stella Zieminski, Jane Jozefiak and Helen Morawiec. Her brother Edmund "Bucky" Adamczyk and his wife Joan survive her.

A special thank you goes out to nieces Barbara Racine and Joan Scott.
The family would like to thank all the caregivers she had both when she was at home and also at Williamstown Commons. Their caring concern and tenderness was a source of comfort and strength.
