Eva Joyce Abdo, 82, passed away peacefully at her home in Port Orange, FL on January 30, 2019. Joyce was born Eva Joyce Hill in Syracuse, NY, to Dorothy and Frederick Hill. She married Edward Abdo on January 21, 1956, at the age of 20. She was a child care provider in DeWitt, NY, until the family relocated to Florida in 1978 and Joyce began her 30-year career in banking. She was a member of the Fraternal Order of Eagles #4089 in Port Orange for over 30 years, served as Treasurer and volunteer waitress for Sunday breakfast for many of those years. Joyce will be remembered for her outgoing personality and zest for life. She loved to entertain and was the life of the party. Joyce is preceded in death by Edward, her husband of 60 years and is survived by her daughters, Robin Lasky (Troy), Carrie Lasky, (Tim) and son Tom Abdo, grandchildren Nicole Lastinger, Brooke Lasky, Alyssa Lasky, Adam Lasky and great-grandson Noah Snyder. Mom loved her family unconditionally and will be forever in our hearts. We would personally like to thank the medical staff at Halifax Health Hospice, Port Orange for the loving and compassionate care they gave our mother during the past few months. We will be forever grateful. It was our mother’s wish to have a celebration of life which will be held at the home of her daughter Carrie, 1003 Sandy Terrace Court, Port Orange on Saturday, February 9th from 1:00 PM – 3:00 PM. In lieu of flowers, please consider sending a donation in Joyce’s name to Halifax Heath Hospice of Port Orange, 3800 Woodbriar Trail, Port Orange, FL 32129.

To Carrie, Robin, and Tom
Our deepest sympathy for the loss of your mom.
When Ron first introduced me to the family some 45 years ago in the home of his parents, amongst the sea of family members (aunts, uncles, cousins), stood a tall blonde lady— I immediately felt drawn to her. This is when I first met Aunt Joyce. She took me “under her wing” and began to explain the dynamics of this large wonderful family. Rest In Peace Aunt Joyce( although, I bet she already has someone under her wing in Heaven).
Love, Diane and Ron

Robin, Carrie and Tom,
Our hearts go out to you.. losing a Mom or Dad is so devastating. Your Mom was one of my favorite aunts.. so full of life and always so kind and caring. I regret that I have not seen any of you in many years. Maybe someday we can plan a cousin reunion. We hope you and your families feel God’s embrace hold you through your pain into healing peace.

I am here in Florida visiting my mother. We heard about Joyce's passing and my mother wanted to share in her words her memories. " Joyce was the best neighbor I ever had and a friend always.I have many memories of the times we shared together. She taught me how to bowl and introduced me to bingo. I remember taking care of the family dog Snoopy. Joyce was always helpful in times of need. She was always cheerful and a person you loved being with. My deepest sympathy to the family. Remembering you and loving you always.
I remember Joyce when I was growing up in DeWitt. She was often laughing and liked to joke with my father who usually took things too seriously. She was often at our house drinking coffee. I remember her often wearing shorts and flip-flops. As a young person my impression of her was how much fun she was. When I saw her at my niece's college graduation several years ago I remember how good she looked and how unchanged she seemed. Joyce made a big impression.
My deepest condolences to the family.

Mom, no words could ever express how much I will miss you. You were always there for me during my times of tribulations and greatest joys. Your wisdom, strength and guidance has made me into the woman and mother that I am today. Your passing has left such a huge hole in my heart but I know that you will always be beside me, as you were in life, now shall you be in death. I love you Mom...
