Linda Thompson

Linda M. Thompson, wife of Doug Thompson, died on December 15. She was 74.

In 1983, the Thompsons were commissioned by EPC World Outreach as the denomination’s first overseas church planters. In the 10 years they lived in Toulouse, France, they successfully planted three churches and helped revitalize a fourth congregation. They returned to the United States in 1993, where they served several churches in the Presbytery of the Midwest. In 2020, the Thompsons retired from Ward Church in Northville, Mich., where he had served on the Care Ministry staff. Doug also is a former Chairman of the World Outreach Committee.

She is survived by her husband, Doug; son and daughter-in-law Paul and Betsy Thompson; son Marc Thompson; daughter and son-in-law Monique and Jordan Guelde; and seven grandchildren: Caden, Belle, Evie, Sam, Will, Weston, and Elliana.

    Doug, I received today the notice that Linda has gone home to be with Jesus. I am sorry for your loss and trust she is with Jesus and suffers no more. My prayers are with you and your family. She was a special lady.
