June 12, 1943 – November 9, 2022

On November 9, 2022-Heaven gained an angel and the matriarch to four generations of a loving family.

Joyce “Jo” Hazouri born in Brunswick, Georgia on June 12, 1943. Survived by her dedicated husband (Richard) of nearly 60 years, her two children: Dana (Steve) Edmonds and Rick (Tamara) Hazouri, her sister Brenda Welman, 5 grandchildren, 6 great grandchildren and multiple nieces and nephews.

Richard and Jo had a love that is impossible to put into words. They fell in love during their teenage years, dated almost eight years and the rest is history. From early on in their relationship, they would dance to old music, walk to movies and ride around town-just looking for a reason to be together. That love was displayed to everyone who knew them.

Jo was the definition of “The Golden Rule”. She treated others better than she treated herself while always putting others’ needs before her own. Having battled multiple back and hip surgeries as well as cancer, she dealt with chronic body pain but you would never know it. She NEVER complained! You would see her wince, ask her if she was okay-and the answer would always be the same: I’m fine.” or, I’m good.” If she thought that you might need something, she would be the first to jump out of her seat to get what you needed. Just ask her grandkids. When you visited her at her home, there was rarely a five-minute span where she didn’t ask you if you wanted something to eat or “Do you want some tea?” That was her. If there was an opportunity to serve, she was all in. From all the rummy games, Sunday Dinners, tight hand squeezes and a good left punch, our Wife, Mother and Sittie will be forever missed!

Funeral services were held on Wednesday, November 16, 2022 at Hardage-Giddens, Oaklawn Chapel, 4801 San Jose Boulevard with Rev. Terry Gore officiating and interment at Oaklawn Cemetery.
