Denise Giunta of Middletown NY died at ORMC on August 18, 2019 surrounded by her family after a courageous battle with glioblastoma.
Denise was born in Bethpage NY and lived her young adult life in Long Island and in Queens before moving to Orange County in the early 90's. Over the years Denise worked in many aspects of the medical field and loved her work helping others in the home healthcare field. Her greatest joy was her family and close friends. Denise was known for putting herself last for the needs of her family. She raised her two sons as a single mother and continued motherhood later in life to raise her two grandchildren.
She was predeceased by her mother Kathrine Guinta-Lobban (2013) and her brother Harry Giunta (2000).
She is survived by her father Bruce Lobban, her son Bruce Andrade, who tirelessly dedicated himself to his mother during her battle with cancer, her grandson Julian Andrade, her son Carlos Gonzalez and grandsons, Kameron Gonzalez and Colby Gonzalez. She is also survived by her sister Donna Consepcion and husband, Papo. Her nephews Jason Newton and DeAngelo Newton, and her niece Kristy Salcedo.
She was lucky enough to find a wonderful man in her fiance, John Barone, who was by her side throughout this journey. They loved each other very much.
Her family would like to thank the staff and hospice team at ORMC for the wonderful care given to Denise and her family during this time and her friends who were by her side, especially Carmen Riley.
