Obituary for June M. Esposito

June Margaret Esposito (Hyman), 80, of Glendale, Arizona, died peacefully on December 31, 2018, at her home where she had lived with her husband of 61 years. She was born in Chicago, Illinois to Harry Elsor Hyman and Lillian Lenor Hyman (Schmidt).

June was an Air Force wife and enjoyed traveling throughout the United States and abroad, meeting many friends along the way. She loved to paint, write, crochet, and study the Word of God. In 1975 she received the Lord Jesus as her Lord and Savior and has served Him in many ways. In 1995 she attended Sweetwater Bible College and graduated as a Reverend. She went on to Bible College at Gateway International Bible Institute and was Ordained in 2012 as a Pastor. Her service to the Lord included officiating weddings, teaching and counseling women in suffering, teaching in the youth ministry and she was a faithful prayer warrior.

During the past 15 years she fought and survived her first lung cancer and two separate battles with breast cancers. In 2018 she was diagnosed with her second lung cancer. She was brave and courageous in this final battle which ultimately took her home to the Lord. God has kept her under the shadow of His wings during her cancer battles and her faith always remained strong. Her testimony always gave God the Glory and she used her trials as witness to His promised word.

She is survived by her husband, John V Esposito, and 5 children; Karen Phillips (Patrick), Pamela Powell (Dean), Sandra Dubuque (John), Teresa Esposito, and John M. Esposito (Kristina), 13 grandchildren and 8 great grandchildren. Her family was a big part of her life and she loved spending time with them. She had many friends which she considered part of her family as well. She is proceeded in death by her parents, Harry and Lillian Hyman, sister Harriet Miller, brothers Bill Hyman and Richard Hyman.

In lieu of flowers please make donations to the American Cancer Society.

Memorial Services for June will be held Sunday January 6th at 10:00am at Phoenix Memorial Park and Mortuary.

June was my friend since 1970 when we first met in Gila Bend, Arizona. Me being a newlywed and totally unfamiliar with military life June was a Godsend. Her and John have been wonderful friends over the years and we share many fond memories. I am saddened by her death. She has left a wonderful legacy behind....and the Angels rejoiced to welcome her home!

I honestly have so many wonderful memories of June. Our family met her family in 1970 in Gila Bend, Arizona . As a little girl at that time, I always looked at June and thought she was so pretty and nice. Our families went camping, including Mexico. I remember the year we were all there at Thanksgiving. The fathers had dug a hole for the Turkey to cook. It never cooked as it was so windy and cold.
Everyone pitched in and bought tamales.... !! First year ever with no Turkey on Thanksgiving!
I had kept in touch on and off all these years with her. I loved her smile, her calm demeanor and the way she loved her family, including her wonderful husband, John. June was one of the kindest people I knew. I have no doubt she is in heaven smiling down on all of her beautiful family and friends. God Bless !

June and I shared lots of laughs and good talks. Her compassionate ways and love of the Lord was so evident! And she showed the love of Christ through all her storms. Camping in Rocky Point with the Esposito’s, the Murphy’s and the Zavarella’s and others was an absolute riot and great memory for us‼️😍😍
