Lynn Marie Ochoa, of Swanton, Ohio, died Tuesday, October 17, 2017 at St. Luke’s Hospital. She was born on January 18, 1955 in Toledo, Ohio to Mary Anne (Quinn) and Wayne William Foreman.
She was a member of the St. Ursula Academy class of 1973.
She was married February 28, 1974 in Las Vegas, Nevada to Henry Ochoa.
Lynn was known to be an excellent canine obedience trainer. Her beloved dogs have won numerous awards in the show ring and she took the training of her dogs very seriously. She was especially fond of the boxer breed and owned numerous boxers through the years.
In addition, she was a dedicated, long-time employee of Schmidt Bros., Inc., Swanton. For over 38 years, she managed multiple areas of the greenhouse and had a propensity for computer programs. Her work ethic was unmatched and she sought to foster that principle in her co-workers.
She was predeceased by her mother Mary Anne (November 27, 2000) and father Wayne W. (July 3, 1995).
Surviving is her loving husband of 43 years, Henry Ochoa. Also surviving are her six siblings Mary Patricia (Craig) Riker, Sylvania, Ohio; Marcia Anne Foreman, Pensacola, Florida; Terrance (Chris) Foreman, Sylvania, Ohio; Denise (Scott) Carroll, Grand Haven, Michigan; John (Mary Jo) Foreman, Toledo; and Timothy (Monica) Foreman, Toledo.
Her sarcastic wit and plain speak are already sorely missed by her surviving nieces and nephews Cynthia Mulligan, Catherine Riker (‘Little Lynn’), Benjamin Carroll, Barbara Joy Giroux, Cameron Carroll, Anne Carroll and Elizabeth Foreman. She has a growing number of grand-nieces and grand-nephews that will be raised with “Aunt Lynn” stories.
