September 19, 1948 ~ July 5, 2002
June Elizabeth Swagler, a Torrance resident of 23 years, passed away on July 5, 2002 at the age of 53. June was born in Buffalo, NY and moved to California with her family in 1979. June was the Program Director for the Gable House Bowl for 18 years. She was also the Team Manager for her daughter's soccer team, the Torrance United Waves. She is survived by her husband Robert; daughter Jennifer; son-in-law Pete; sisters Barbara, Debbie, Patricia, & JoAnn; and brothers John, James, & Michael. A memorial viewing for family & friends will be held Saturday, July 13 from 12-5pm at White & Day Mortuary, 901 Torrance Blvd. Redondo Beach, CA.
June was a dear cousin of mine, who I knew as a young child, and played with her daughter Jen. They moved to California when i was 5 years old. I once again reunited with her last summer, a year ago to be exact. I came to know her as a sweet and caring woman that people adored. She will with a doubt be missed.
I will miss June very much, and so will my children Mark & Stacie, as we all loved her very much. She was always an inspiration to us and she was the nicest person we have ever had the pleasure of knowing and we\’re so glad we had the opportunity in our lives to have known her. We wish the best to her family in this time of grief.

We miss you and love you june!!!!
June Swagler was an extraordinary woman. Where do I begin with the memories? Her heart – always so big, and her smile always brought warmth to everyone. She was always so supportive and there was never a selfish moment in her life. She always welcomed me into her family with open arms. I feel very fortunate to have been able to visit her not too long ago. June- I can\’t begin to tell you how much I will miss you and how sad it is to see you go. Although you may no longer be with us, your soul lives on. I love you!
Even though Junie lived 3,000 miles away, I knew if I ever needed to whine to someone I could pick up the phone and she was always there to make me feel better. I\’m going to miss her and our talks greatly.
My sister—Always loved sadly missed

dear bob and jennifer, our thoughts and prayers are with you. june was a wonderful wife, mother and friend. we will keep you in our prayers at this time of saddness and grief. may god bless you and help you.
Dear Bob and Jennie No words can express how sorry I am in this time of your loss. June was the first person I worked with at Gable House. She welcomed me with open arms that first day 13 years ago, I was a total stanger but after 2 minutes you would have thought we had been friends for sometime. That was June, she made every person she met feel at ease and loved, young and old, rich or poor. She touched so many with her kindness and love. Now she is with our Lord and I will truly miss her smile and the many talks we shared. And those rubber band fights in the office. But she will always be in my heart until we meet again.
My condolences to Palmdale(Bob), Jen, and everyone else who\’ll miss June…. I feel lucky to have worked with June for a number of years, fortunate to have so many memories and stories to keep her memory going….. Like when I found out her last name wasn\’t “line two”. Can I just say that I\’ll never pick up, eat, or even look at a piece of honeycomb(sponge candy) without thinking of June, and smiling.
Keeping you in our prayers today and always.
June was a sweet person.She always would say hi and she helped me plan 4 of my birthday parties.She lived in the same complex as we do my grama would see her all the time waiting for a taxi.She will be missed sincerely, savannah,kathy and nina
Dear Bob, Jenny, Pete, and family, We are unable to find the words to express our deepest sympathy. We do feel so fortunate to have known June. What a special woman! She had a gentle spirit, so caring, and kind to all she encountered. As you know, she took care of JT as an infant. JT was an extremely difficult infant who would not stay with anyone. I still remember our first meeting. She was so intuitive to know JT\’s apprehension. He warmed up to her almost immediately! I was so amazed how she handled him. We were grateful. In the days ahead, take care of yourself. You know that is what she would have wanted you all to do. May the memories of her bring some comfort. The quality of your relationship with her is found in your strength, your resilience, and your ability to create a new and meaningful life. God bless. Minami Family
I first met June 15 years ago when I was only 16 years old. I was one of her first party hostesses at Gable House Bowl. From the first day I met her, she embraced me with warmth. Some years later when I had my son Rutger, she embraced him with that same warmth and love and he grew to know and care for her like the rest of us. June had so many special qualities about her; so much to offer. Those of us who were fortunate enough to call her a friend, know exactly what I mean. She was loving, caring, giving and the most unselfish person I\’ve ever met. One could always count on her. Whether you needed advice, a shoulder to cry on or someone to share a good laugh with. I will never forget her sweet smile, her loving eyes and her contagious laughter.
Bob, Jen & Pete June was a very special friend and we will miss her so very much.I enjoyed so much working with June all those years at Gable House we shared so much.I am so glad I got to share all the fun at Disneyland with you Bob,Jen & Pete (Sammy) love you always…I love You June I will not say goodbye only good nite my very special Angel oh yes the wings look great on you..Thanks for agreeing to be my special angel I will have no worries with you by my side..Don\’t party to hardy now, save some of that good fun for all of us when we meet again..Bob Jen & Pete you will always be in my heart…P.s.

June was the nicest, coolest boss I\’ve ever had. She was more than my boss she was my friend. She cared about all her party hosts, as if we were her own children. Her smile and beautiful spirit will never die, but rather be with us through our hard times. I love June for the person she was: a caring, loving and cheerful person. You will be missed by so many June, especailly me. Thanks for all the great advice you gave me and that smile of yours that lit up the whole room and your heart-warming hugs. I love you June!!!!!
Dear Bob and Jennifer; My condolences to you at this difficult time. June was such a sweet person, always in a cheery mood and upbeat. She used to order the printing jobs for Gable House from the company I work for and I would talk to her often, when I delivered the jobs, we\’d have a chat about my son, your soccer events, Jen, and diabetes related topics. I was not able to talk to you on Saturday – if I opened my mouth I would have burst into tears and you would not have known what I was trying to say anyway. My son, Richie Driver is a deskperson at Gable House and he has known her since he started bowling there at age 7. He said without June there, Gable House is “just another bowling alley”. She brought sunshine to that place & will be missed terribly. Take care both of you, and know that June will always be in our memories.
Dear Bob and Jennie, Our hearts go out to your family you are in our thoughts and prayers. June was one of the sweetest people I have ever met, I am so glad we had the opportunity to see her at Kellies Gradutation party, her beautiful smile will forever be a wonderful memory in our hearts. Until we meet again June.. God Bless, Stacey,Nicole and Allison
