Obituary for Carolyn Hamilton Adams

Carolyn Hamilton Adams of Gainesville, VA passed away on Tuesday, September 26, 2017, at Inova Fairfax Hospital in Falls Church, VA, surrounded by her family. She was the beloved wife of Ronald B. Adams; a loving mother to Diane Adams and Lou Ann Adams Lagana; mother in-law of Brian Lagana; and a wonderful grandmother to her grand-pup Emma.

She was born on January 6, 1937 in Delhi, NY to the late Carl J. and Eva P. (Jackson) Hamilton. Carolyn graduated from Delaware Academy Central School and SUNY Cobleskill.

She was a stay-at-home mother until her children graduated and then re-entered the workforce, first at Provimi Veal in Bloomville, NY and then at Corning Incorporated in Oneonta, NY.

She loved spending time with her family and friends, traveling, cooking, interior decorating, shopping, and sudoko puzzles. She will be remembered for her wonderful smile, her love of laughter, and her kindness and willingness to always help others.

She was predeceased by her parents, her brother Jack and sister-in-law Teresa Hamilton, nephew John Hamilton, and sister-in-law Peggy Hamilton.

Carolyn is survived by her husband of 56 years, Ron, and her daughter, Diane Adams, both of Gainesville, VA; daughter and son-in law Lou Ann and Brian Lagana of Alexandria, VA; brother Carl "Bruce" Hamilton of Vinton, VA; and many cousins, nieces and nephews.
