June S. Mohler, 73, nurse, Catonsville High's 'No. 1 Fan'

June S. Mohler, a retired registered nurse who was Catonsville High School's "No. 1 Fan," died Monday at St. Agnes Hospital of an embolism. She was 73 and lived in Catonsville.

Mrs. Mohler was an industrial nurse at Westinghouse Corp.'s Linthicum plant for 20 years and retired in 1987. At the time of her death, she was working in Catonsville Community College's counseling center.

An enthusiastic supporter of Catonsville High School's athletic program, she was a familiar figure at both home and away games for more than 15 years.

"She started coming to watch her grandchildren," said Principal Robert Tomback. "She had as much energy in the stands as the players on the field.

"If there was an athletic event anywhere on campus, she was there. She was the first to arrive and the last to leave. She'd be in the stands one minute and then would be selling hot dogs the next at a concession stand."

This spring, Mr. Tomback presented Mrs. Mohler with a plaque that recognized her as the school's "Number One Fan."

The former June Scruggs was born in Jessup and graduated from Glen Burnie High School in 1943. She earned a bachelor's degree in nursing from the University of Maryland School of Nursing.

She was a communicant of St. Mark Roman Catholic Church, 27 Melvin Ave., Catonsville, where a Mass of Christian burial will be offered at noon tomorrow.

She is survived by two sons, Donald I. Mohler III and Michael E. Mohler, both of Catonsville; a sister, Nancy Weiner of Catonsville; and four grandchildren.

Memorial donations may be made to the June S. Mohler Memorial Scholarship Fund, Catonsville High School, 421 Bloomsbury Ave., Catonsville 21228.
