Aleksandra F. Kitson
Aleksandra F. Kitson (née Rogic), of New Providence, NJ, passed away on August 9, 2017. Born in Belgrade, Yugoslavia, she came with her family to the United States when she was four years old. Her family lived in Massachusetts, Saskatchewan, and Indiana before settling in northern New Jersey, living in Chatham Township and Whippany. After her marriage, she and her husband lived in Syracuse, NY for a time, then settled to raise a family in New Providence. Aleksandra graduated from Whippany Park High School in Whippany, NJ, and attended Purdue University. An accomplished branch banker, she worked in banks in Morristown, NJ and Syracuse, NY, and headed the cash accounting department for the former Horizon Creditcorp. She had an encyclopedic knowledge of serial killers, essential oils, noir films, literature, and had phenomenal taste in music. She seemed to have an almost endless knowledge of any subject, being able to happily converse with anybody about anything that interested them–often with her special brand of wonderfully dark humor and biting sarcasm. The pride of her life was raising her sons and being a homemaker. Aleksandra is survived by beloved husband Thomas E. Kitson of Madison, NJ, and her loving and devoted sons Evan T. Kitson and Ryan A. Kitson. She is also survived by her loving parents Milorad and Zora Rogic of Mukilteo, WA; brother George Rogic (Diane) of Virginia Beach, VA; and sister Marija Mayo (Nicholas) of Snohomish, WA. Also surviving are beloved in-laws Malcolm and Joyce Kitson of Madison, NJ; sister-in-law Beverly Paolella (née Kitson) of Chatham Township, NJ; and several nieces and nephews. Services will be private.
