Andreski, Joseph (17 June 1901 - 30 Nov. 1948)

Joseph Andreski, age 47, who was rounding out his fourth year as Marathon county sheriff, died in St. Mary’s hospital at Wausau Tuesday morning at 8:56 o’clock of internal injuries received in an automobile accident early Sunday.

The mishap occurred on highway 52, about half a mile north-east of Wausau, when he lost control of his car and rolled into a ditch on the left side of the road. The car hit a granite mail box post as it left the road.

Taken to St. Mary’s hospital, he was in fair condition Monday, but took a turn for the worse during the night. The exact nature of his injuries was not learned.

He served as deputy sheriff for several months under the late Sheriff Simon Schaumberger in 1932. He was deputy for four years under Sheriff Henry Kroenwetter. From February, 1947, to February, 1942, he was a detective on the Wausau police department.

After leaving the police department he was employed as personnel manager at the Underwood Veneer company until he was elected sheriff in 1944.

Governor Rennebohm announced Wednesday that he had appointed Mrs. Jospeh Andreski of Wausau to serve as Marathon county sheriff. She will serve until sheriff-elect Carl Mueller assumes the office in January.

Born June 17, 1901, in the town of Maine, Sheriff Andreski was the son of Mr. and Mrs. George Andreski. He had lived in this area all of his life, most of the time in Wausau, and was married here February, 1, 1936, to Miss Mabel Bazlen, who survives.

Also surviving are his mother, Mrs. Carl Andreski, Milwaukee; four brothers, Alex Andreski, Janesville, Thomas Andreski, Wausau, and Theodore and John Andreski, Milwaukee, and four sisters, Mrs. Telen Blake, St. Paul, Mrs. Regina Marms and Miss Bernice Andreski, both of Milwaukee, and Mrs. Hattie Laabs, Appleton.
