Esperanza Gonzales

November 15, 1966 — April 7, 2019

Esperanza Espy Gonzales passed away on April 7, 2019, at the age of 52 years. She was born to her parents Luz (Soto) Rimple and Antonio Molina. Espy was a proud graduate of El Paso High School where she was a member of the marching band. She went on to attend Oral Roberts University. She was a member of Victory Church.

Espy worked as a store manager in the retail industry and then into the banking aspect of the financial industry at Bank of Oklahoma. She built good relationships with her co-workers during her tenure at BOK.

Espy was an angel on earth, and she helped people whenever she could. She had a wonderful sense of humor and a joyful laugh. She was close to her children, siblings, cousins, grandchildren, nieces, nephews, and aunts. She made many wonderful memories with her cousins and family throughout the years, and this world is emptier without her.

Espy is preceded in death by her loving mother, Luz Rimple. She is survived by her children Heather Dillon (BJ), CJ Rimple (Pennelope), her grandchildren Surena Dillon, Dallas Dillon, Aliyah Rimple, Levi Rimple, her brothers Tony Molina and Cheyenne Rimple, niece Janelle Dorantes (Matthew), nephews Eli and Abel Dorantes, many wonderful cousins, aunts, uncles, and a host of friends.
