About the Book

'Til Death Do Us Part is the commemoration of a daughter's love and admiration for her father and mother. Suzanne Johnson recognized the enduring love that her father always showed for her mother and uses this book to tell the world of that love. Even as Alzheimer’s piece-by-piece removed the woman that he loved, Suzanne's father still held her dear. His struggles while dealing with his wife's devastating disease is a story of respect, endurance, and always, love.


A word from the author:

In my book, appropriately titled ‘Til Death Do Us Part, the reader may identify with the compassion of one care giver in comparison with the brutality of the disease itself.  Hopefully it will enlighten and offer support to those in need. When I think of who my mother was in her prime, and who she became in the end, it’s like imagining two different people.  She too was a graduate from nursing school in 1943.  Care giving was natural for her.  She came from a large family of seven children who worked hard on their farm to make ends meet.  She helped provide for the family and took care of her younger siblings.  She enjoyed working in the hospital and felt at ease among the halls of medicine.  She never would have wanted her life to become so dependent upon others but unfortunately, her nurturing role was reversed.  My father stepped into the role of care giver for 15 years as she helplessly became the unwilling recipient.

My greatest hope for today is to spread awareness of the disease and support extensive research for the promise of a cure once and for all.
