This Investors Group Walk for Memories is dedicated to Susan and Boyd Wylie.
Susan and Boyd Wylie, married since 1978, have both experienced the loss of their mothers to Alzheimer’s disease.
Susan grew up in North Vancouver with a younger brother and parents that encouraged her to use her imagination and to have a sense of humour. Boyd grew up in Richmond with an older sister and had a wonderful childhood making and floating rafts. Both Susan and Boyd would like to claim their parents as the best in the world.
Boyd first connected with the Alzheimer Society of B.C. in 2008 for information to better understand his mother’s diagnosis. He and Susan later became founding members of an adult kids’ support group in Langley. They both credit attending support groups as allowing them to learn more about the disease and to process their feelings.
Both Susan and Boyd have extensive knowledge of dementia and provide endless empathy and support to others whose lives are impacted by dementia. They also volunteer at numerous local events by distributing information.
Join Langley, Aldergrove and Abbotsford in honouring Susan and Boyd Wylie and others impacted by Alzheimer’s disease and other dementias at the 2015 Investors Group Walk for Memories. Let’s get walking, Langley, Aldergrove and Abbotsford!
