Mary Sue Vasas

2021-04-05

Mary Susan Sinyai Vasas, 79 of Fernandina Beach Florida entered into eternal peace surrounded by loved ones on Monday April 5, 2021 after a long illness. She joins her husband, George J Vasas, formerly of Seymour, Connecticut.

Sue was born in Stamford Connecticut, the daughter of the late Albert J and Margaret MacCaffrey Sinyai

After marrying, Sue made her home in Seymour, Connecticut for the next 30 years before retiring to Fernandina. She loved her work in Connecticut as an LPN in the burn unit at Bridgeport Hospital in Bridgeport Connecticut and her volunteer work with Birthright. In retirement she continued her volunteer work at Baptist Nassau working in the gift shop.

Sue touched many lives in almost 80 years, and we all thank God, we had her. Her greatest pleasures were living near the beach, strolling from time to time when her health allowed, and spending treasured time with family and friends.

In addition to her husband and her parents she was pre-deceased by her beautiful sister Fran Flomberg.

She leaves behind six children: Theresa Elliott of Litchfield Connecticut, Mary Demchak of Fernandina Beach Florida, Albert and Lisa Vasas of Milford New Hampshire, George Vasas Jr. of Fernandina Beach Florida, Stephen and Charlene Vasas of Ansonia Connecticut and Thomas and Jennifer Vasas of Gainesville Florida. Sue also leaves behind the siblings she loved so dearly, Kathryn White of Fernandina Beach Florida, Jim and Laurie Sinyai of Mandeville Louisiana, Al and Sue Sinyai of Asheville North Carolina, Margie and Bob Fallon of Brandon Florida, Elliott Flomberg of Valrico Florida, and Cindy Sheffer of Fairfield Connecticut. Grandma Sue also leaves behind 12 grandchildren and 5 great grandchildren that she cherished dearly, as well as 20 nieces and nephews who adored her.

There will be memorial service for Sue at St. Francis of Assisi Catholic Mission on Saturday April 17, 2021 at 11:00 AM.

There will also be a Memorial Mass at St Mary’s Church 212 Elizabeth St in Derby Connecticut on Saturday, May 1, 2021 at 12:00 noon. This mass will be followed by interment at St Michaels Cemetery Silver Hill Road, Derby, Connecticut.

In lieu of flowers please feel free to donate to mom’s favorite charity, St. Jude’s Children’s Hospital in her name.
