Valma Fell's life was touched by dementia three times; first, when her brother-in-law was diagnosed with the "new illness" of Alzheimer's in the 1960s, again when another brother-in-law was diagnosed with Alzheimers decades later, and finally when her own husband, former Illawarra Mercurcy general manager, Ian Fell, was diagnosed in 2006.
