Eva G. Howard

November 18, 1955 — May 18, 2023


Eva G. Howard, of Syracuse, passed away peacefully on Thursday, May 18, 2023 at Goshen Hospital at the age of 67. She was born on November 18, 1955 in Warsaw, IN to John and Norma Blackburn.

In her formative years, Eva lived in Elkhart and then moved to Syracuse in 2014 where she would spend the rest of her life. Eva had many passions in life, baking and gardening were among her favorites along with family gatherings.  She had a green thumb and found joy in tending to beautiful plants and flowers that she grew under her careful watch. More than anything, Eva loved her grandchildren dearly- spending her time with them was her favorite.

Eva is survived by two children: Crystal Bontrager and Matt Howard; four grandchildren; sisters: Deborah Hampton, Diane (Terry) Buck, and Michelle Coy; and a sister-in-law, Eva Joe Blackburn.  She was preceded in death by her parents and one brother, John David Blackburn.
