Vasvija “Vasva” Supan

April 19, 2017

Vasvija (Vasva) Supan age 86, of Kitty Hawk died on April 19th, 2017 after a long illness. She was born in Yugoslavia in 1931 to a successful textiles business family.  Everything was stripped from her family during the communist takeover, and she and her newly married husband Romeo were able to escape during the mid-50’s to Canada and then made it to their dream destination- the US.

Initially speaking no English, she worked cleaning offices while her husband was able to find work as a graphic artist. Settling in Syracuse, NY in the early 60’s she was able to open a small retail business which she successfully ran for 30 years. She moved to North Carolina in 2005 along with her remaining family.  She was a true animal lover providing a home for several elderly adopted dogs and cats.

She is survived by her daughter, son-in-law and three grandchildren, all of Southern Shores, NC.  She is predeceased by her husband Romeo who passed in 1999, and by two of her three children.

She requested no services and that any memorial donations to be sent to the Outer Banks SPCA.  She lived a full live and is a true product of the American Dream.
