Fund Categories: Award
Fund Types: Student Award

The Alexis Wiltse Memorial Fund is a heartfelt tribute to the indomitable spirit of Alexis Wiltse, a woman whose life was marked by unwavering loyalty and boundless love. Her vibrant character and infectious spirit were a guarantee of vivacity wherever she tread.

Alexis was no stranger to challenging paths, yet she sculpted each journey into her unique narrative. Her larger-than-life personality, unmatched sense of humor, and remarkable ability to create a safe haven for everyone, regardless of their life’s course, defined her essence.

Her pride and passion in her role as a social worker and Team Lead for Secwepemc Child & Family Services shone through in her fierce dedication to keeping families together. Alexis was loyal to her core, always led with love, and her spirit and character was guaranteed to keep things lively in her presence.

She never chose the easy road, but instead found a way to make any road travelled nothing but her own. Alexis passed doing what she loved most, enjoying the freedom of the open road on her beloved Harley Davidson FXR.

In loving memory of Alexis, her family has established the Alexis Wiltse Memorial Award Fund, dedicated to supporting graduating students from Chase Secondary School. Annually, the fund will provide an award of up to $500 to a deserving student who has exhibited resilience in overcoming barriers to complete their Secondary School education.

The creation of this award not only commemorates Alexis’ legacy but also serves as a beacon of encouragement for students facing challenges, embodying the spirit of perseverance and determination that Alexis herself exemplified.


Jen Kimble, friend and colleague, expressed her sentiments as Alexis was posthumously awarded the Dr. Cindy Blackstock Distinguished Service Award. This award is given to an employee in recognition of their outstanding contribution to the children and families who are served by Secwepmc Child and Family Services.

I want everyone to know, especially her family, that Alexis was not just a good social worker, she was an exceptional one. She was kind, honest, hard-working, authentic, tenacious, and her favourite thing about herself? She was hilarious.

She was the social worker who spent her weekends cooking meatballs for families when they were grieving, the one who sat with you for hours to come up with a plan for your children, and never gave up on you or on fighting for you.

She was the co-worker you could depend on for a laugh, for comfort, for words of wisdom and that she was going to do her job right. And for some of us lucky ones, she was a best friend who never let us down and showed us unconditional love and kindness.
