Linda Zasada Obituary (2022) – Rotterdam, NY

Zasada, Linda (Hoffman) ROTTERDAM Linda (Hoffman) Zasada passed away peacefully in her sleep on the morning of Wednesday January 5, 2022 after a long illness. Born in Troy, Linda was the youngest daughter of the late Nathan Thomas and Anne (Pafundi) Hoffman. She was a graduate of Catholic Central High, Class of 1967, the Russell Sage Nursing Program and Empire State College. Linda has worked in healthcare for her entire working life and had a passion for aid administration; even after retiring as a registered nurse, Linda continued to find joy in caring for her loved ones. She was always quick to laugh, with a huge heart and a fiery sense of humor, and was always eager to help anyone however she could. Linda is survived by her beloved husband, James Zasada, with whom she celebrated 39 years of marriage. She is also survived by her children, Nathan and Elizabeth Zasada; his sister, Patricia (Hoffman) Belfay; all her nieces and nephews whom she loved so much, and her dog, Rhyce. Linda loved her family, thunderstorms, dogs, a good joke, Pepsi, popcorn, Christmas, storytelling, fall (for the changing leaves and her birthday in October), classic rock, and people who fall. She was a devoted wife, a doting mother, an incredible friend and a caring soul; she was sweet and gentle, and had time and a smile for everyone. Special thanks to her nieces, Ann (Belfay) Franquiz, Laura (Belfay) Jacques and Katherine (Belfay) Doyon who, together with their families, always went out of their way to show Linda how much she meant to them and how how much they loved him. her. Finally, much gratitude and appreciation to the staff at the Schenectady Center, who loved her and cared for her in her final days. Linda was loved and she will be missed. She is at rest, with her family and her already deceased animals, waiting to see us again. In lieu of services, a memorial service will be held at a later date, to be announced in the spring.
