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 Kentucky where she graduated high school before moving to Elkhart and then to Syracuse in 2014. Eva had many passions in life, but baking and gardening were among her favorites. 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 deeply – spending her time with them was her favorite.

Eva is survived by two children: Crystal Bontrager and Matt Howard; four grandchildren; and two sisters: Deborah Hampton and Diane Buck. She was preceded in death by her parents and four brothers: Walter, Mick, John, and Ferd Blackburn.

Titus Funeral Home and Cremation Services is trusted with Eva’s care. A memorial gathering is planned at the Funeral Home – Syracuse Chapel, 1001 S. Huntington Street, Syracuse, on Monday, June 5, 2023 from 5:00 to 7:00pm. To leave a written condolence or to order flowers, please visit
