Suzanne grew up in Arlington Heights, Illinois. Before
moving to Dallas, Suzanne spent 14 years in Atlanta where
she was vice president of Ridgeview Institute. During
those years, Suzanne was very active in marketing, fundraising
and in promoting charities for the community. Suzanne
and her husband, David Palmlund, have 5 children and 6
grandchildren and have been residents of Swiss Avenue
since 1984. They lived at 5007 Swiss Avenue for ten years
and now reside at 5323 Swiss Avenue. Suzanne’s motivation
for starting the Swiss Avenue Women’s Guild in 1995
was to bring together the residents of our 106 homes that
span eight long blocks. (4900 to 6000 Swiss Avenue). With
the other founding members, Martha Novorr and Vanessa
Hoffmann, they envisioned that they could become more
than just neighbors and could form lasting friendships.
Suzanne has always believed that we should actively promote
the neighborhood and has acquired 18 years of research
dating back to the first house (1905). Suzanne is truly
a friend to the Swiss Avenue Women’s Guild and is
one of the first to welcome every new family on the street.
From the original 50 founding members to those many new
residents whose lives have been enriched through membership
in the Guild, we thank Suzanne for turning her vision
into a reality.
