January 19, 1948 – November 28, 2020

Linda Lucille Ferguson, age 72, of Byrd’s Chapel, MS, passed away on November 26, 2020, with her family by her side.  She was born January 19, 1948, to Roger and Doris (Lafleur) Fortin, of Holyoke, MA.  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.
