Sieglende “Linda” Thompson, 53 of Lexington Park, MD, was born on January 3, 1966, in Sulzback-Rosenberg, Germany, and was called to glory on October 17, 2019 at St. Mary’s Nursing Home in Leonardtown, MD. Linda was the daughter of the late Christen Karl Herbst and Erna Ida Kuschel.
On February 12, 2016 at the Courthouse in Leonardtown, MD, she married the love of her life, Alan Wendell Thompson.
She worked as a Production Worker for 28 years at Siemens in Amberg, Germany. She came to the United States in 2016 where she worked at Walmart as a Deli Associate and at SSI as an Assembly Worker. When Linda was not working, she enjoyed dining with friends and family at local restaurants. When Linda was in Germany, she enjoyed traveling and visited many places in Europe even making a trip to the United States visiting a dear friend in San Francisco. Her special moments were spent going out on the water with her husband (an avid fisherman) and playing with their dog (or as she affectionately called him her son) Rambo, who they rescued from the Animal Shelter.
