Linda’s Obituary

MANSFIELD: Linda Tormaschy, age 73, passed away Saturday, May 5, 2018 in Mansfield with her only granddaughter, Rosa, by her side. Linda was twice a cancer survivor, and kept her independent spirit. She will be dearly missed.

Linda was born February 28, 1945 to parents George & Rosie (Martin) Breeden in Alexandria, VA. Linda worked at American General Insurance in Mansfield for many years as a saleswoman until retiring.

On January 10, 1975 she married the love of her life, Raymond Tormaschy. They shared 27 wonderful years of marriage until he passed away in 2002. They are now together again.

Linda was self-proclaimed as “Elvis’ favorite fan” and dearly loved animals—she even named her macaw Elvis! Her favorite color was purple and she helped to raise her granddaughter, Rosa. Too young at heart to be called a “grandmother” she preferred the nickname Rosa gave her: “Mommy Linda.” Rosa remembers Linda and Raymond as fun-loving grandparents and enjoyed the close relationship they shared. Hardly ever seen without a cup of black coffee and a cigarette, Linda spent her whole life caring for others.

She is survived by her granddaughter Rosa (Mitchel) Perry of Mansfield and great-granddaughters Serenity Perry and Stella Perry.

She was preceded in death by her parents George & Rosie Breeden; her only daughter Lelia Tormaschy who passed away in 2014, and her brother Donnie Breeden, who tragically passed away in a car accident at the age of 19.

She will be buried in Mansfield Cemetery with a private family graveside service officiated by Chaplain Dan Clouse.

In lieu of flowers, contributions in Linda’s memory may be made to the Mid-Ohio Animal Welfare League, P.O. Box 3842, Mansfield, OH 44907.

Snyder Funeral Homes is honored to serve Linda’s family and encourage you to share a memory with them at

    Linda was my first cousin. Her mom, Rosie, and my dad, George, were siblings. Always hoped we would all connect again. I heard you will be at the Martin reunion. Look forward to meeting you. I’m sorry you lost your grandmother. Death is so hard.
