Linda A. Toohey-Anderson


Linda A. Toohey-Anderson, 56, of Virginia Beach, VA passed away unexpectedly on Thursday, November 5, 2020 at Sentara Leigh.

Born in Providence, Rhode Island, she is the daughter of Robert H. Hesford, Sr. and the late Catherine J. Manchester. Linda was a realtor for 28 years, most which were with her Rose and Womble family.

Linda had a sparkling, joyful and infectious personality. Linda never met a stranger. She was one of the most giving and selfless people you will ever meet. Her motto is “the more, the merrier.” Linda is the true definition of a survivor. She never let a situation get her down, she always overcame it. Some of the pleasures in life Linda enjoyed were hanging out with friends and family, her grandchildren, spending a day at the beach, getting her nails done, listening to music, and decorating for a holiday.

Linda leaves behind, to cherish her memory, her four children: Sara and Peter Toohey and Shane and Matthew Anderson, her three grandchildren, Landon and McKenzie Toohey and Jack Anderson. She also leaves behind her father, Robert H. Hesford, Sr. of Cranston, RI; her sister, Jennifer Greene of Exeter, RI; her brother, Brian Hesford of North Kingstown, RI; her half-sister, Amanda Couture of Warwick, RI; and numerous nieces, nephews, cousins, and dear friends. Linda was predeceased by her mother, Catherine J. (Hesford) Manchester, her brother, Robert H. Hesford, Jr.; and her maternal and paternal grandparents.

A celebration of life will be announced at a later date. In lieu of flowers, please consider donating to
