Dear Friend of Lompoc Hospital District Foundation
For more than 30 years, we have been committed to raising money to help Lompoc Valley Medical Center purchase necessary medical equipment to expand services for our local residents. We have been an active and engaged provider of healthcare-related lectures and have worked diligently to promote enhanced access to care in the Lompoc Valley.
We're sorry to announce the passing of hospital volunteer June Schwartz, who died Monday afternoon at the age of 98. June volunteered countless hours to the Lompoc Hospital District Foundation, the Lompoc Hospital Women’s Auxiliary, and the LVMC “Blue Coat” program. She was still volunteering in the final months of her life until the COVID-19 pandemic forced her to stay close to home.
She was a volunteer for the hospital for more than 50 years. June spent decades delivering magazines and freshly cut flowers to patients at LVMC and residents of the Comprehensive Care Center, “trying to make people happy,” as she said.
She will be missed.
