Oak Forest residents Lin Fuller and Noël Paden were in their 20s when they met at the now defunct Sound Warehouse, where they both worked, in the mid-1980s. Twenty-six years later they are the co-owners of Maid in the Shade which they started in 1988, using $500 to invest in vacuum cleaners and some mops.
