Carol Ann Lopez, 74, entered into eternal peace on Sunday, November 19, 2017, at Kaiser Hospital in Antioch, CA while surrounded by her loved ones.

Carol was born on January 1, 1943, the youngest daughter of the late Henry P. Rivera and Carnation M. Figueroa. She attended school in San Francisco, Ca, and married the love of her life, the late Louis Lopez, before moving their family to the Tri-Valley Area in 1970.

After working 15 years at Lawrence Livermore Lab she became a full-time homemaker. She enjoyed playing Dominoes, Spades and Pinochle with her husband, children, and friends on special occasions. Going fishing, taking her family on camping trips and loading her kids in the car to enjoy the drive-in on the weekends were just a few of her favorite activities. Another one of her favorite pastimes was teaching her kids, grandkids, and their friends how to Salsa dance. Carol also loved to play Bingo with her close friends and family, but more-so she loved to win!

She was preceded in death by her Mother, Marie Marez, her devoted Husband of 36 years, Louis Lopez, her beloved Son Ernie Ross, and her loving brother, Henry Rivera Jr.

She leaves her loving memories to be cherished by her children and their spouses; Toni Ross, Elsa (Fred) Anaya, Michael (Deanna) Lopez, Lisa (Lou) Rosas, Louis Lopez Jr, and Jesse (Tyna) Lopez; 15 Grandchildren and 4 Great-grandchildren, 4 nieces, 10 nephews; 3 sisters, Vivian Muscat, Marie and Carmen Marez.
