LAKE COUNTY, Calif. — Mary Carol Erquiaga passed away peacefully at home on Nov. 23, 2023. She is predeceased by her husband of 62 years, Juan Erquiaga and great grandson, Carson.

A Southern California native, Carol graduated from nurses training and finished training at St. Vincent Hospital in Los Angeles in 1951 and by 1952 she was the head charge nurse at Lakeside Hospital in Lakeport where she would work until she retired in 1989.

In 1955 Carol married the love of her life, Juan Erquiaga. The happy couple’s first bundle of joy arrived in December of 1961, a bouncing baby boy, Mark Lynden, named after Carol's father. Mark enjoyed being the only child until the stork dropped off Mary Kate in June of 1967.

Together Carol and Juan worked and played and raised their family in Kelseyville.

Carol leaves behind her son, Mark L. (Jeanine) Erquiaga and daughter, Kate Erquiaga; grandchildren, Marcus and Ryan Erquiaga (fiancée, Sandra Martinez), Justin Newton (Misty), Johnathon Newton (fiancée, Dreamer) and Kenny Henninger; great-grandchildren, Justin, Sean, Nova, Conner and Carter on the way; and lots of nieces and nephews.

Memorial Mass will be held at St Peter's Catholic Church in Kelseyville on Dec. 15 at 11 a.m.

In lieu of flowers please consider a donation to the Lake County Passion Play.
