Obituary of Lydia Christine Gonzalez

Lydia Christine Gonzalez, known as Christina by friends and family, passed away peacefully on February 25, 2024 in Aptos, California. Christina was born in San Francisco, California on September 1, 1952. She lived in Ohio and grew up in Tucson, Arizona before moving to California to complete her Bachelor’s degree in Social Work from San Diego State and Master’s degree in Social Work from UC Berkeley. Most recently she lived at Redwood Shores and in Santa Cruz, California.

Christina dedicated her life to helping others. As a licensed clinical social worker she specialized in adolescent mental health. Her 12 nieces and nephews can attest to her special way with young people. She was an avid runner with the Wharf to Wharf in Santa Cruz being her favorite race of the year. She loved to salsa dance, eat quesadillas and feel the warm sun on her face. Her family rejoices having known Christina for her love of life and kindness. They are at peace knowing she is no longer suffering and is made whole in the presence of the Lord.

Christina is survived by her mother Lydia, siblings Irma, Carol, Judy, George, Michele, Lisa, Humberto and Robert. In lieu of flowers, please contribute to the Alzheimer’s Association.
