Joyce Mary Surabian (Credit) who was born on January 19, 1941 in Worcester, MA passed away peacefully with her family by her side to be with her Lord and Savior Jesus Christ on January 10, 2021.

“Joy”, as her friends and family called her, was an incredible mother, grandmother and friend to so many. Her kind smile and her humor made everyone around her feel welcomed. She put God first in her life at all times and instilled her faith in her family and anyone she spoke with.

Joy is survived by her daughter Ruth Weiner of Peoria, AZ (and husband Mark), Harold Surabian Jr of Simi Valley, CA (and wife Adena) and her daughter in law Gina Surabian of Thousand Oaks, CA (wife of Joy’s son Kirk who passed away in 2002).

Joy was an incredible grandmother and helped raise all 5 of her grandkids at one point in her life. Briana, Jordan, Dominique, Nicolette and Kirina will greatly miss their “Grammy” as she was called.

In lieu of flowers, a donation could please be made in Joy’s honor to the Christian Broadcast Network (

Aunt Joy was such a sweet person! My first plane ride and some of my first memories were flying from SC, as a three year old, to visit her and her family In CA. It was such a fun time! She visited us periodically and it meant so much to me that she attended my wedding in 1987. She always shone the light of Jesus!
