Thomas Linford

DuPage County

Greetings, my name is Thomas Linford and I’d like to make a difference. I serve on the DuPage County Care Center Foundation because I believe I can help a worthy cause. I’m here to help increase our outreach and aid the residents of the care center in their quality of life over anything. I’m a lifelong resident of DuPage County except for a brief stint in Iowa City for an undergrad education and Minneapolis for my professional life. Now I occupy my time as a deputy clerk in the Wheaton courthouse. I enjoy gaming, bowling, as well as D&D but still focus on the community that made me. I live to serve and am optimistic about the future!

Secretary

Suzanne Gagner

Retired from the City of Naperville
Joined the Board in January, 2015

A tour of the facility showed me the wide variety of engaging programs and needed services that the DPCCF board supports. I joined to participate in continuing that excellent work to benefit the residents of the center.

My interests include: membership in AAUW to promote women’s issues; two book groups and just enough “land” around my townhouse to satisfy my green thumb.

Re/Max Action

I have resided in DuPage County for more than 50 years. I received a BS degree from Northern Illinois University and an MBA, with a Real Estate concentration, from Roosevelt University.

Working in Real Estate for more than 25 years has given me a wealth of knowledge in sales and marketing. Since becoming aware of the DuPage Care Center Foundation, I have wanted to support and help achieve its goals. The mission of the DuPage Care Center Foundation heightened my awareness for the need of such a Foundation. Looking forward, I hope to use my marketing and sales expertise to help strengthen and expand the legacy of the DuPage Care Center Foundation. When I’m not working, I enjoy salsa dancing
