Pauline Adams of Forks died at the age of 90, surrounded by her family. She was born June 20, 1929, in Ketchikan, Alaska, daughter of Thomas Hanbury and Annie Auriole.
After Pauline’s mother died at a very young age, Joseph Hayward and his wife adopted Pauline at the age of one. Sadly, Pauline also lost her adoptive mother early in her childhood and was placed in many different homes until she met and married Lester Adams on June 8, 1946. Together they had two children, Marleen and Donavon.
Pauline and Lester moved to Forks in 1972 where they spent 58 years together. Pauline and Lester loved the Holiday seasons and hosting barbeques for family and friends. Pauline was a wonderful cook and no one ever left her house hungry.
Grandma Polly was a very loving mother, grandmother, and great-grandmother. Her smile lit up any room she entered.
Pauline is survived by her daughter and son-in-law, Marleen and Sandy Amundson of Forks, and son and daughter-in-law Don and Donna Adams of Forks. She is also survived by seven grandchildren and 14 great-grandchildren.
Pauline’s parents, siblings, and husband preceded her in death.
