Batavia resident Linda Thome, 54, was at the Batavia Public Library when she answered 11 questions for the Kane County Chronicle’s Brenda Schory.

Where did you grow up? Berwyn

Pets? A saluki named Giorgio and a bichon frise named Rocco

Who would play you in the
movie of your life? Roseanne Barr

First job? Carm’s Beef Stand in Berwyn

As a kid, what did you want to be when you grew up? A police officer, but my father would not have that. I became a dental assistant.

A book you’d recommend? “The Stand” by Stephen King

Favorite charity? American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals

Favorite ice cream flavor?
Pralines and cream

Words of wisdom? Karma. Whenever somebody says someone did something bad to them, karma will get them.

What is an interesting factoid about yourself? I’m going to my first dog show, showing Giorgio at the Belle-City Kennel Club in St. Louis.
