  • Carol Ann DelBiaggio, April 16, 1936, to June 7, 2021.
Carol was born in Wisconsin. At an early age, she and the family moved west to Ferndale, California. Her family didn’t have much, but she always talked of the family joy during those years.

She loved Ferndale, the town, the people and the community spirit. It is where she went to school, made forever friends and met the love of her life Henry DelBiaggio. They spent just shy of 62 years of marriage together before his passing in 2020. They had lived in Fortuna and Eureka for a time before coming back to their “true” hometown of Ferndale. The last 47 years were spent in their dream home, making a beautiful garden for all those who passed by. If you stopped by Carol’s home you were probably going to leave with some flowers.

Carol worked a few part-time jobs through the years, but she always knew her most important jobs were being a servant for Christ, wife, mother, grandmother and friend. She was the hub to all family occasions and made everyone feel special.
Carol spent a lifetime giving of herself to others, including the following: Cub Scouts, Girl Scouts, PTA, School Board, Ferndale Museum, Humboldt County Grand Jury, Humboldt Republican Woman’s Association, and many church groups. We may have missed a few, our apologies. She was also a proud Wildcat booster and was always there for all of her grandkid’s sporting events.

Carol was a member of the Fortuna United Methodist Church. She loved God, family and friends. She met friends everywhere she went.

Carol is survived by sons Dennis (Susie), Daniel, and daughter Donna (Bob), grandkids Tawney (Brant), Daniel Jr. (Katrina), Jourdan (Kelly), Billy (Christine), Dustin (Tierra), Jared, Kyle (Kayla), and Samantha, and 15 great-grandkids. She is also survived by her brother Bill Shewry (Mimi) and sister Sandra (Stan) Kubanski, and brother-in-law Walter (Diane) DelBiaggio.

The family would like to thank Britt and Tina for their support through some difficult times. Mom was thankful for the cards and phone calls she received from her many close friends, and would have wanted to close by saying to all her friends: Thank you for the wonderful journey life has been, God Bless.

Donations in Carol’s memory can be made to the Ferndale Museum, Fortuna United Methodist Church or Hospice of Humboldt.
