June Marie Guengerich was born April 29, 1928 in Martinez, CA and entered into the presence of her Lord Jesus on October 25, 2017 in Downey, CA.


June attended Pepperdine University before her marriage to Richard Guengerich in 1950.  When her three daughters reached school age, June attended and graduated from Long Beach State University.


With a caring heart and a love for helping others, June was an educator in the Downey School District for over 30 years.  After retiring from teaching at Warren High, June impacted many more lives serving with Child Evangelism Fellowship for the next 23 years.


June leaves behind her loving family:  Her beloved husband of 67 years, Richard Guengerich of Downey, CA, her daughters, Donna, Karen, and Cathy,  nine grandchildren and eleven great-grandchildren, as well as many other family members.


Through the years, June was an active church member of Immanual Mennonite, Downey First Baptist and Calvary Chapel of Downey where many appreciated hearing her beautiful voice as she sang to God’s glory.  One of her favorite Bible verses from Isaiah 12 is “The Lord is my strength and my song.”  June’s memorial service was held at the Downey First Baptist Chapel on November 6, 2017.


She will be greatly missed by all who know and love her.  She wants us to be comforted by Jesus’ promise that we will be with her again forever!
