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.

Stone Soup Consultants LLC

As a volunteer at DPCC, I fell in love with the residents and the dedicated staff who treats them like family. The decision to join the board and help make a difference here was an easy one.

My husband Roy and I have lived in Glen Ellyn for 33 years. After leaving corporate America in 2017, I founded Stone Soup Consultants LLC (a marketing consultancy) with a former colleague. In my spare time, I’m a Master Gardener, foodie, aspiring colored pencil artist, world traveler, active member of First Congregational Church, avid reader, wife, mom, and spoiler of my grandcat, Franklin.

I am an avid volunteer and the mission to provide quality programs for our elderly community is very important to me. Serving on the board coincides with my vision of accomplishing this goal.

The most important part of my life is spending time with my children, my puppies, playing games, and enjoying nature.

I work as Regional Agency Manager/Continuing Education Instructor at Safelight AutoGlass. I’m a proud father of two young adults and a uncle to numerous nieces and nephews. Golf is my main hobby.

I have long ties to the Center from my Grandmother, a resident in the early 80’s to my mother in law, a resident today. The Center was also a rehabilitation home for my father. It is a wonderful and important facility for my family; I’m happy to support it.

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!
