Joyce M. O’Meara
1937-2021

Joyce M. O’Meara, age 83, passed away February 9th, 2021 at Advent Health Hospital, Flagler Beach, Florida. She was born Joyce Marilyn Kosefsky, May 6th, 1937 in Brooklyn, N.Y. to Ed and Edith Kosefsky. Both of Brooklyn, N.Y.

Spent most of her life living in Brooklyn. Worked as a Cosmetologist after graduating from the Robert Fiance School of Cosmetology in Manhattan. A generous supporter of a number of charities throughout her life. Supporting Native American causes, Veterans, Animals, and Children. Not to mention numerous personal acquaintances and family members.

She had one son, Nicholas C. Aguilera of her marriage to Trinidad Aguilera. She then married again in 1975 to James O’Meara of Brooklyn, N.Y.

They moved to Copaigue, Long Island, N.Y. where they enjoyed entertaining family, friends and neighbors for a number of years at their home and aboard their boats. Both she and her husband James thoroughly enjoyed boating and anything on the water.

At approximately 1980, they moved to Flagler Beach, Florida. James opened a successful business and Joyce managed the home. They were both charter members of the Flagler Beach Yacht Club. Well known to many in Flagler Beach, their homes were always open to their many dear friends from the Yacht Club as well as friends made in the local business community. And from overseas as well.

She was a wonderful person and humanitarian. Nothing pleased her more than when friends would come to the house. Where she would prepare a fantastic meal, pour some wine, and enjoy her friends. She made it look so easy.

She had a true Servants Heart. She loved to be with her friends and to please them.

She is survived by her son, Nicholas, her brothers Bill, Roy and John. As well as her loving sister, Joan. All of New York.

We are all better for having had her in our lives. It was a blessing not completely understood until her passing.

There will be an informal service for her in her home in Flagler Beach on Saturday, July 10th.

All who knew her and loved her will be welcome. It will be a non religious gathering of family and friends celebrating her life in the spirit of how she lived hers.
