Corinne Adomian

July 22, 1934 — April 5, 2024

Athens, GA

Corinne Adomian of Athens, GA passed away on April 5, 2024.

Corinne Adomian spent her childhood on a dairy farm in between Columbia Falls and Kalispell, Montana, with her parents Dorothy and Mark Hodgson, her older brother and sister Paul and Mary Lou.  She started her journey in a community rich in traditions and history.

Her delight in exploring the world led her in her youth to read every book in the local Carnegie library.   After earning an Associate of Arts degree from Rocky Mountain College, she traveled while working for an oil company in Los Angeles, then joined Hughes Aircraft where she met the love of her life, George Adomian.  She said she married George because she knew it would never be boring.

With Corinne at his side, George earned his PhD. and advanced from engineer to professor and director of a research institute, while continuing to contribute greatly to America’s defense efforts.

Corinne and George had four children, Haig (Sara), Diane (Eduardo), Laura (Bill), and Aram.  Haig is survived by his four children, James, David, Daniel (Fahara), and Garrison.  Meanwhile, Corinne continued to enthusiastically pursue her passions, studying fiction writing, Armenian language, and history with the great author Leon Surmelian at UCLA.   She imparted her love of music, dance, history, writing, and more, as her gift for research and learning, to her children and grandchildren from the earliest age.

With a fine scientific mind, she helped her husband to edit and publish his work, and through careful analysis, she guided her family through many health crises.  She traveled across the globe with a deep interest in the people and places she encountered.  

Corinne survived the tragic losses of her husband and two sons with grace, forever sharing a positive and practical perspective to guide all around her.  She would engage with all ages and walks of life, joining young and old to support their artistic pursuits or just to share joy.  Friends remember her selflessness, always reaching out in times of their loneliness to ensure they felt like family.  She lived her life helping everyone around her find happiness.

During her years with George and for nearly thirty years afterward, Corinne was a deeply involved champion and advocate of Armenian charities and causes worldwide.  In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the American Armenian National Security Institute (AANSI.org) – 330 N. Brand Blvd., Ste. 1250, Glendale, California 91203.

Services will be held at Lord & Stephens Funeral Home East, in Athens, Georgia on Saturday, April 13th, 2024, with visitation from 1:30-4:00 pm and service at 4 pm.  A second service and interment will be held at Forest Lawn Hollywood Hills in Los Angeles, California at a later date this month.
