Linda Lou Holtkamp Ferguson Linda Lou Holtkamp Ferguson, 73, died Friday, October 23, 2020 at her residence in Carlsbad, California. Services were held on Tuesday, November 17, 2020 at El Camino Memorial Park and Mortuary In San Diego, California. The internment concluded at Miramar National Cemetery in San Diego, California. Her final place of rest at Miramar can be found in Section 16, grave marker 162; for all those that wish to visit. Linda Lou Holtkamp, The daughter of Wendel and Lavon Holtkamp, was born July 13, 1947, in Springfield, Massachusetts. When WWII ended, Linda and her parents moved to Hawarden, Iowa where they kept a farm until she was nine years old. The family decided to put down roots in Sioux City, Iowa where she attended Bryant Elementary, North Junior High School and Central High School. Linda participated in cheer, flag and was a great athlete in high school. She graduated high school in 1965 with her high school sweetheart and future husband, Doug Ferguson. Linda and Doug married in 1966 when Doug was on leave from Vietnam with the United States Navy. The newlyweds then moved to San Diego and Linda gave birth to her only daughter Melissa; who brought the young couple so much joy. The duration of their residency in San Diego was anything, but slow paced. Doug and Linda started multiple successful businesses in which Linda was the executive for. Everyone considered Linda a trendsetter in the consumer electronics field, as it was mostly male dominated. She was a wonderful leader, that was respected, knowledgeable and balanced her family life with grace. Linda and Doug purchased a home in Palm Desert in 1980. They really enjoyed their second home as it was their "getaway home." The couple immediately gained a strong social circle and enjoyed going out with these friends and having get togethers with them. Hitting the golf course was another favorite pastime of the loving couple and enjoying the fine dining the desert had to offer. Linda enjoyed sports, social gatherings, vacations, her family and fashion. She thoroughly enjoyed her mother-daughter trips with Melissa that they participated annually in. She loved cruising with her beloved husband and together, they visited over 60 countries in her lifetime. Linda is survived by her husband Doug Ferguson, her daughter Melissa Ferguson, her sisters, Paula and Lisa. Her brother in laws: John, Jim and Tom. In addition she has one sister in law, Gayle. Linda had multiple nieces and nephews that included: Tara, Ashley, Pam, Jessica, Michelle, Joanne, Eric Damian, Andy, Andrew, Randy, Charlie, Jeff, Kevin and Keith. She leaves behind one god daughter, Morgan.
