Celebrating the Life & Contributions of  

Linda Thacker Solomon

On October 4, 2021, we lost our dear FOAH Treasurer, Linda Thacker Solomon.  Not only was Linda a skilled, meticulous, and insightful board member, she was a cherished friend and neighbor whose humor, positive outlook, and no-nonsense perspectives made her a lively, bold, breath of fresh air.  

 

Linda's impact on her community reached far beyond her volunteer efforts and dedication to preserving and celebrating Aldredge House.   With a BS and Master of Arts degrees from TWU and Master of Science degree from Corpus Christi State, her sense of adventure took her to Guam and Hawaii where she taught English to children.  In Dallas, she was a talented and compassionate DISD teacher working with and for deaf students and their families for 31 years, then worked at Faith Academy testing and teaching deaf children for 15 years.  She later was recognized as a member of the Oxford Round Table, which brings together scholars and others from a variety of backgrounds to discuss research on specific topics usually related to public policy. 

Linda grew up in her family home, and still resided, on Bryan Parkway.  The Thacker family was one of the original founding families and supporters of Dallas' first historic neighborhood, the Swiss Avenue Historic District.   She was a loved and cherished neighbor, often the first person to greet new residents,  introducing them to other neighbors, and guiding   them through necessary steps for renovations, and helping them navigate neighborhood politics and city requirements.  She was always a highlight during countless porch gatherings.  Linda was also a founding member of Friends of Aldredge House, helping to establish an endowment for Aldredge House as Dallas’ most architecturally significant historic home and house museum. 

 

To honor Linda's leadership within FOAH, her deep commitment to personal and professional friends and her East Dallas neighborhood, and her passion for education and historic preservation, her family encourages everyone who can to recognize her with a donation to Aldredge House, in lieu of flowers.    Donations will contribute to preservation efforts and  lively educational programs that celebrate Aldredge House - and our uniquely amazing friend, Linda Solomon.
