Remembering Valerie Linker

The entire Argenta Community Theater family was saddened by the loss of our dear friend and ACT team member, Valerie B. Linker in June of 2020. Valerie was a friend and champion of ACT, serving as our Event Coordinator from 2019-2020. Her infectious smile, giving spirit, and no-nonsense demeanor had a way of making everyone she met instantly feel like not just a friend, but a part of the family. Whether she was expertly planning and executing an ACT event, supporting our students and cast members, or assisting families with one of the most special days in their lives as our resident wedding planner, Valerie always made a huge impact, and always looked for a way to help MORE. How can we feed more kids who may be hungry? How can we reach further to support the underserved in our community? How can we nourish a cast and crew during a long tech weekend? How can we extend love and hospitality so that everyone who walks through the doors of this theater knows they are truly family to us? How can we make the biggest positive impact? These are the kinds of questions that Valerie asked and answered every single day. To know her was to instantly love her. Her loss will be keenly felt by all of those she touched at ACT.

At the request of Valerie’s family, we have now established the Valerie Linker Memorial Fund. In keeping with Val’s memory and her lifelong efforts to expand accessibility to the arts and support her community, all memorial donations to this fund will be used to expand access to performing arts education and experiences for kids from underserved communities, and to further Argenta Community Theater’s community outreach initiatives. Your contribution to Argenta Community Theater, a 501 (c)3 non-profit organization is tax deductible to the extent allowed by law.
