Armeen Erigan Stone, 90, passed away on October 19, 2019. Born in 1929 to Noubar Erigan of Armenia and Myrtle Allen of Tioga, Louisiana, she lived in Corpus Christi her entire life except for 4 years in college in Waco and 2 as a school teacher in Crawford. Her mother died when she was 8 years old so she was raised in large part by her step-mother Thelma Boone Erigan.
Armeen graduated from Corpus Christi High School in 1946, then attended Baylor University as a home economics major. It was there she met the love of her life, Charles Cabeen (Chuck) Stone, Jr. After graduation they married in 1951 and she returned to Corpus Christi and devoted her life to her children, her friends, and her church. She was a long-time member of Grace Presbyterian Church, and also served as the president of the King High School PTA, receiving an honorary lifetime membership from the state organization. She and Chuck also travelled extensively in the US and abroad, including a trip to her father’s native Armenia.
She was predeceased by her husband Chuck, and brother Charles Erigan. She is survived by her children – all Baylor graduates -- Charles C. Stone III of Munich, Germany, Noubar Allen Stone and wife Meri of Simsbury, Connecticut, and Katrina Little and husband John of Ft. Worth Texas, and grandsons Travis Stone of Berkeley, California, Lukas Stone of Bozeman, Montana, and Jasper Stone of San Luis Obispo, California.
Armeen remained a devoted fan of the Baylor Bears in all sports, and always looked forward to Homecoming, this year being one of the few she missed. For the last five years she was a resident at Mirador where she enjoyed all of the activities and friends she had made over the years. Her family would like to thank the staff at Mirador and her home care giver for their attention and care, and her many friends, too numerous to individually name, who looked over her, helped with errands, and drove her to and from church over the last few years.
A celebration of Armeen’s life will be held at a future date.
