Linda Lucille Ferguson, 72, of Byrd’s Chapel, Miss., passed away on Nov. 26, 2020, with her family by her side. She was born Jan. 19, 1948, to Roger and Doris (Lafleur) Fortin, of Holyoke, Mass. She was a 1966 graduate of Precious Blood High School, and attended Westfield State College. She retired after a long and fulfilling career with the United States Postal Service.
Linda was a loving and caring person who always saw the best in everything and everybody. She enjoyed knitting, as attested to by the many homemade blankets and scarves her family possesses! She loved the beach, and trips there with her husband, children, and grandchildren were her favorite times.
Linda was preceded in death by her father, Roger J. Fortin of Holyoke. She is survived by her husband of 48 years, Ralph Ferguson; two children, Kristen (Matthew) Wood, of Huntsville, Ala., and Shawn Ferguson (Malissa) of New Braunfels, Texas; her mother, Doris Fortin of Holyoke; her brother, Roger (Mary) Fortin, of Holyoke; her sister, Michele Duval of Springfield, Mass.; and her brother-in-law, Gilmer (June) Ferguson, of Byrd’s Chapel. Linda was adored by her grandchildren, Morgan, Dalton, Braylon, and Kellen Wood; and James, Emily, and Kate Windrow, and numerous nieces and nephews.
There will be a memorial service at a later date to celebrate Mrs. Ferguson’s life.
In lieu of flowers, please extend the support Linda gave by making donations in her memory to St. Jude’s Research Hospital, or to a charity dear to you.
