January 10, 1979 - August 6, 2020
Erica Lee Rodriguez, 41, of Bay City, our generous, encouraging, and most beautiful, optimistic, and loving daughter, sister, aunt, cousin, and beloved friend went home to be with the Lord on the morning of Thursday, August 6, 2020 at McLaren Bay Region. Erica was born in Bay City on January 10, 1979, the daughter of Audon Rodriguez, Jr., and the former Mary Helen Cantu. She graduated from Bay City Central High School with the Class of 1997, and went on to work as an accounting manager. Throughout life, Erica was known for her tremendous faith and love for God. She was a faithful member of In His Presence Ministries. Erica loved puzzles, singing at the top of her lungs, and enjoyed the outdoors – especially camping and tubing. Amidst darkness, Erica was always the bright light bringing forth peace and hope to all those she encountered. Erica loved helping people; she was always trying to rescue people, even though she faced her own life difficulties. Always putting others before herself, Erica was a source of joy to many. She will be deeply missed, yet lovingly remembered for years to come. Erica leaves to carry on her legacy, her parents, Audon & Mary Helen Rodriguez; sister, Crystal (Thomas) LaPan; nieces, Amelia and Callie LaPan; special cousins, Ruby, Christina, Melinda, Ray, Oscar, David, along with many other cousins and extended Rodriguez and Cantu family members.
