Inés Brianceschi

October 21, 1927 ‒ October 20, 2020

Mansfield, Ohio

MANSFIELD:  Elegance is when the inside is as beautiful as the outside. Style begins in the mind from which a lifestyle naturally flows. Inés Brianceschi’s was a life well lived – characterized by a firm faith in God, dedication to her family, and a life of grace and beauty. A woman with elegance is timeless.

The Lord called Inés to himself Tuesday, October 20, 2020 from her Mansfield home. She was 92.

Born Placida Inés Fernandez in Cuenca, Argentina to parents Emilio and Maria Consuelo (Garcia) Fernandez, Inés earned graduate degrees in pharmacy, optometry and classical piano performance – all from the University of Buenos Aires – and came to this country in 1958.

She worked several years in pharmacy research for Armour Pharma in Columbus, before moving to Mansfield, where she began teaching private piano lessons from her home. With two pianos – one in the living room, and one in a private studio – she had a waiting list twice the number of her students.

Inés was crazy about her grandchildren – she focused on them in such a way to make each of them feel as though they were her favorite.

Always impeccably  “dressed-to-the-nines” (even if she wasn’t leaving the house), Inés was constantly “put-together”: a classic suit (jewel tones by Chanel or Hermes), coiffed hair, heels, necklace – everything worked well, elegant and fashion forward: stunning, simple and understated.

She will be remembered for her generous heart – advocating children of Spanish descent – living her faith and unconditionally loving her family.

She is survived by her loving husband of 68 years Carlos Brianceschi; their daughters Silvana (Phillip) Rosmarin of Mansfield, Veronica (Mark) Schuetz of New Albany, and Andrea (Robert) Biedenharn of Loveland; eight grandchildren; two great grandchildren; sisters Violeta Mata of Fort Lauderdale, FL, Consuelo (Lito) Colombo and Gloria Fernandez both of Argentina; a brother Emilio Fernandez of Argentina; and numerous nieces and nephews.

The Brianceschi family will receive guests Monday, October 26, 2020 from 10:30 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. in the Lexington Avenue Snyder Funeral Home. Funeral Mass will be offered Monday at Noon in Resurrection Parish celebrated by the Rev. Father Kevin Moebius, with burial to follow in Mansfield Catholic Cemetery.

In lieu of flowers, contributions in her memory to OhioHealth Hospice may be made at the funeral home. The Brianceschi family deeply appreciates the loving care Inés and their family received from José, Pia, Christina, Brooke, Maggie, Abby, Rebekah, and Daniel and everyone from OhioHealth Hospice.

  • Dear Silvana and Rosmarin family,

    So sorry for your mother’s passing. We know she is in a Gods arms, leaving this earthy body behind. May God and your families comfort carry you into the peace that is.


  • A beautiful lady and a life well lived. It was a pleasure to know her. God give her family comfort during this time of loss. RIP Inez…….

  • Para nosotros siempre fuiste la “Bella Durmiente”, la que tenía todos los talentos y la que llenaste mi niñez de música de fondo. Nos llevás la delantera- como decía Tía Aurora- nos veremos pronto. Todo mi amor para Carlos y las chicas y un abrazo especial para mi adorada Silvana. Rezo por ustedes y por ella especialmente.

  • Estimado Carlos, desde Bragado (Argentina) y precisamente en la casa que lo vio nacer, le envío a Ud y su flia un gran abrazo ante la irreparable pérdida de su Sra esposa Inés (QEPD). Dios acompañe a Ud y flia y permita encontrar la resignación.

  • Silvana and family, I am so sorry to hear of the loss of your mother. Enjoy your beautiful memories of her and rest easy knowing she is in God’s hands.

  • She deserved that beautiful obituary because she truly was beautiful inside and out. I would see her walking with her husband in their Woodland neighborhood linked arm-in-arm. If I saw her at church or at a store, she always asked about my family. Long after Catholic women stopped wearing hats to Mass, she would wear beautiful lace mantillas .She was a regal lady.

  • Inez, was, indeed, a woman of timeless grace. Her friendly smile and kind demeanor are unforgettable. My heartfelt sympathy to her loving family and my prayers for comfort and strength in this their time of grief. Marian Haring Blahnik

  • So sorry to hear of Mrs. Brianceschi’s passing. I never took piano lessons from her, however, she was always so kind and gentle. I was just one of many kids from the neighborhood whom she would look out for. Sold her several boxes of Girl Scout cookies through the years! Always a classy lady! My condolences to the family.
