Carmen Erwin Moeller, 53, loving and devoted wife, mother, daughter and sister, passed away on Wednesday, May 8, 2019, in Pleasanton, Calif., after a heroic battle with metastatic breast cancer. She was a San Francisco Bay Area native, born to Wayne and Rachel Erwin on April 19, 1966. The oldest of three children, she is survived by her two brothers, David and Daniel Erwin.
She graduated from John F. Kennedy High School in Fremont, Calif., in 1984. Carmen went on to study nursing, then changed majors, graduating with a business degree from Ohlone College and working in the field of marketing until leaving the workforce to start a family.
While attending Ohlone College, she met the love of her life, Robert Moeller. They were married on April 17, 1993, in Fremont, where they also resided, later having two sons, Brandon and Brian. The family moved to Livermore, Calif., at the end of 2012. Carmen taught Faith Formation at Holy Spirit Catholic Parish in Fremont and St. Charles Borromeo in Livermore. Carmen was a strong advocate for Brian and championed the cause of autism. She also loved the San Francisco Giants and Golden State Warriors, just like her mom.
Carmen is survived by her husband Robert, sons Brandon and Brian, her mother-in-law Virginia Moeller, sister-in-law Sue Park, her father Wayne Erwin and stepmother Glenda, as well as her brothers David and Daniel Erwin.
