Nada “Baba” Devus (Lozanovski), of Akron, Ohio, died peacefully in her home, surrounded by her family on March 6th, 2018. She was 91 years old.
Preceded in death by her mother and father, Donka and Grozdan Lozanovzki, brothers Ico, Vangel, and Stevo, and sisters Mara, Cena, and Milica. Nada is reunited with her beloved husband, George Devus. Our baba is survived by her children, Olivera (Tom) Gutshall and Louis (Kathy) Devus, six grandchildren, Chris Gutshall, Melisa Murray, Gina Vondrak, Alex Devus, Matthew Devus, and Julie Devus, her best friend Donna Gorkoff, as well as 8 great-grandchildren and many relatives and friends in Macedonia and Australia.
Nada was born on May 31, 1926, in Bitola, Yugoslavia where she grew up with her 6 siblings and met the love of her life George. Nada and George moved to the United States in 1964, where they eventually settled in Akron with their loving family. Nada’s beautiful natured wit, humor and energy will be missed forever around the Portage Lakes, where she would often be seen listening to her native music while happily waving to boaters. Nada sincerely missed her hometown Babam Bitola. She loved everything about life, especially baking, music, dancing, and most of all, anyone she ever met.
