Linda Tosko Rainey passed unexpectedly from a sudden illness on May 19, 2022 at age 64. She was preceded in death by her beloved brother, Billy. After growing up in Sagamore Hills and Northfield, Ohio, Linda lived in Akron, Cuyahoga Falls, and for the past 25 years, in Westerville, Ohio. She graduated from the University of Akron with multiple degrees and was a career nurse and nurse anesthetist, beloved wife, mother, grandmother, daughter, sister, and friend. She is survived by husband Scott Rainey, parents Bill and Joan Tosko (nee Kramer), brother Mike (Angela), and children Ryan (Stacy), Jason, Meghan Wineinger (Chris), and Jennifer Rehs (Jason), and grandchildren Aiden, Harley, Noah, Austin, Ronan, and Annalyn. Linda devoted her life to helping others. She loved to be surrounded by her family, friends, and her flowers. She never failed to help someone in need, was the kindest woman you ever met, and was the bedrock of her family. Her goodwill extended to adopting a menagerie of cats and pugs.

Wasn't expecting something like this, you were always welcoming to me. You were always like a second mom to me, you treated me like I was your own son. You and your family were a huge influence on me and helped shape me into the man I am today. Thank you for always being there for me and for opening your home and heart to me. You will always be appreciated and loved.
