Sara Asadow, beloved wife of Mark Asadow, lost her battle with Parkinsons disease on Feb. 4, 2018.

Sara Asadow was the daughter of Hyman and Eleanor Mazur. She was born in Akron, Ohio on March 21, 1942. Mark and Sara started their journey moving to Connecticut to start their family.

Sara was the original entrepreneur; she owned her own business in the ’70s, Herbs and Way and by the ’80s purchased Super Natural. Sara worked alongside her family for 35 years to achieve the success Super Natural Deli enjoys today.

Her hobbies included being an avid reader, a diehard Cleveland Indians fan, watching college basketball (her homeboy, Lebron) and a passion for cooking.

Sara is survived by her husband of 56 years, Mark Asadow; her children, Howard, Gail and Jesse Asadow, and their spouses, Jennifer, Michael and Saki, and her seven grandkids; her sisters, Judy Beckwith and Rebecca Mazur, and their husbands, Jerry and John. She had many nieces and nephews and an especially close relationship with Karen Patterson and Deborah Trevino.

She was predeceased by her brother, Emanual Mazur, and grandson, Joshua Asadow.

She was a devoted grandmother. Sara was lucky enough to become a grandmother in her 40s, which is when the nickname Bam came in. Who wants to be a grandma in her 40s? Josh and Jesse were lucky to have spent 28 years together with their grandparents, with Friday night movies, Saturday sleepovers, Sunday outings and all school vacations working at Super Natural.

All donations in Sara’s name may be sent to Josh’s fund at Farmington Bank, 1845 Farmington Ave., Unionville, CT 06085 or Josh’s Fund, 50 Northwoods Road, Farmington, CT 06032.

Sara will be truly missed. Her generosity and kindness will be remembered long after she is gone.

A big thank you to Bristol Hospital Hospice for taking such great care of her. Thank you, Kaylee West, for being a friend and caretaker and helping Sara on her final journey.

A celebration of life will be held on her birthday, March 21, the first day of spring, at Super Natural, 224 N. Main St., Bristol, CT from 1 to 5 p.m. Please join us.

Happy Trails, say hi to Josh, and we will all see you soon!
