Sandra “Sandy” Sue Butterfield, born July 12, 1946 in Decatur, Texas to Suzanne and Johnny Swafford, died peacefully surrounded by her family in Torrance on August 2, 2014. Sandy was preceded in death by her sister, Sheryl Kato (Swafford) on November 25, 2010. She is survived by John Butterfield father to their children, Joshua Butterfield, Samuel Butterfield and Sarah Whittington (Butterfield), grandchildren Chase Whittington, Justin Davidson (Butterfield) and Jacob Davidson (Butterfield) and long-time friend Robert Gates.

Sandy made Torrance her home since moving here as a young child. She enjoyed time spent in the appreciation of nature and with family and friends. She was a devoted child advocate, mentor, mother, friend and teacher. Many years and countless hours were spent working to enrich the lives of those she touched.

The hole left by her passing is immeasurable and she will be greatly missed.

Services will be held on Saturday, August 9th, 4:00 p.m. at the A.M. Gamby Funeral Home, 25001 Narbonne Avenue, Lomita with a reception to follow.

In lieu of flowers, please contribute to the Semper Fi Fund, (in honor of Sandy Butterfield), a charity Sandy contributed to every year in memory of her father. The Semper Fi fund was created by Marine Corps spouses to provide immediate financial assistance and lifetime support for wounded, critically-ill and injured members of the U.S. Armed Forces and their families.
