Ramona J. Tormaschy
January 14, 1929 ‒ May 19, 2015
In every season of Ramona Tormaschy’s life she had a reason to sing and a reason to worship. The Living God was an influence in how she operated her business, maintained her relationships and raised her family.
The Lord called Ramona to His presence Tuesday Morning May 19, 2015 from her home in Ontario Pointe. She was 86.
Born Ramona Yingling January 14, 1929 to Glenn and Margaret (Bowlus) Yingling, she was graduated from Madison High School and Cosmetology School. She operated a beauty shop from her home for more than 40 years and concurrently worked at Therm-O-Disc.
Her first husband Art Denis was the owner of the Coliseum Roller Skating Rink, which is where Ramona developed a love of roller skating and dance skating. She later married the love of her life Mike Tormaschy in 1965 and spent 14 wonderful years together until his passing in 1979.
As a lady who enjoyed the outdoors, Ramona enjoyed trips with her son to the family cabin in Canada twice a year. She also enjoyed taking the motor home on family vacations, boating on Lake Erie, and swimming in North Lake Park swim club. She also took great pleasure in sewing and her many Boston Terriers she adored throughout the years.
Aside from her many interests, Ramona will be remembered as a woman of Christian faith. She loved her church: Gospel Assembly Church, where she served the congregation as head usherette for many years and could be seen at most every church function since she began her membership in 1965.
She is survived by her children Tim Denis of Mansfield, Kandy (Don) Yarger of Mansfield, Mike (Susan) Tormaschy of Tampa, FL, and Shelly Elswick of Cardington; grandchildren Daniel Yarger, Brent Tormaschy, Andrea Tormaschy, Michael Elswick, and Jessica Elswick; two great grandchildren; brother Glenn Yingling Jr. of Columbia, SC, and numerous nieces and nephews.
