Linda SooHoo

Linda SooHoo was born in 1924 in Canton, China and moved to Winslow, AZ in 1947 with her husband Fred SooHoo. Winslow was flourishing due to both the railroad and Route 66, and the young couple worked in Linda’s father Sam’s grocery businesses, Sam Woo Grocery and Sam’s Food Mart. Linda had four children including Spencer who is pictured in two of the slide show photos, and she still worked in the family businesses. In 1966, she and Fred launched “Freddy’s Drive-In” which became famous for tacos that Linda created called “Freddy’s Tacos”. She ran that business until she retired in 1999. The SooHoo’s placed a high value on education. All four of their children went to college and then pursued further degrees as well, truly realizing the American Dream of their parents!
