The Investors Group Walk for Memories in Barriere on January 25

This Investors Group Walk for Memories in Barriere on January 25, 2015, is dedicated to Carolyn Kay Zerr.

Each of the Walks is annually dedicated to an Honouree – a person who has been impacted by Alzheimer’s disease or a related dementia.

Carolyn Kay Zerr (Kay) was born in Calmar, Alberta, in 1939. Her family moved to Terrace, B.C., when she was nine and she moved to Vancouver at age 18. She met her future husband, Gordon, while working at McDonald Appliances.

Gordon and Kay had two children – Carleen and Terrill – and eventually settled in Barriere.

Kay has been an active community member as a mother, wife, volunteer and business co-owner. She started Zerr’s Major Appliance Repairs and Services Ltd with Gordon which serviced the Thompson Valley for over 33 years.

Although Kay’s life has been very full, she has still found the time to enjoy her favourite activities such as camping, gardening, reading and most importantly, spending time with her four granddaughters.

Kay was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease in 2011 and has found the Alzheimer Society of B.C. to be extremely helpful in terms of the education and support services offered to help people understand and cope with the disease.

Kay is appreciated for her positive outlook on life, her kind words and for always being willing to lend a helping hand.

Please join Barriere and area in honouring Carolyn Kay Zerr and others impacted by Alzheimer’s disease and other dementias at the 2015 Investors Group Walk for Memories.

Let’s get walking!

The Barriere Walk takes place on January 25, 2015, at the Barriere Senior’s Centre, 4431 Barriere Town Road.

Registration takes place at 10 a.m.

Walk starts at: 11 a.m. – 1 p.m.
