Glea G. Wylie

Glea Wylie, 82, passed away in her home Aug. 25.
A native Californian, she received her undergraduate degree from the University of California at Berkeley. She later graduated from the University of California at San Francisco (UCSF) with a degree in Physical Medicine & Rehabilitation. In her professional years she was involved in administration and education at UCSF and Franklin Hospital. As a leader, teacher and strong proponent of childbirth education, Glea was one of the west coast's two original instructors in the Lamaze preparation for childbirth.
As a more than four decade long Marin County resident, Glea was an active member of her local and Bay Area community. She served on the board of trustees of the Pacific Vascular Research Foundation, was a docent and member of the board of directors of the Angel Island Conservancy and also was a docent with the Belvedere-Tiburon Landmarks Society. She was a member of the auxiliary and board of directors of Youth in Arts. In addition, she participated as part of the Speakers Bureau and was a member of the board of directors of Hospice of Marin.
An avid duplicate bridge player, she also attended and supported a wide range of Bay Area performing arts and museum groups.
She is the widow of vascular surgeon Dr. Jack Wylie. Glea is survived by her husband's children, Scott, Lee, and Sarah, and grandchildren Patrick and Katie. Glea's family is deeply grateful for Leonor Carreno and Ana Ayala, who were by Glea's side with loving care and comfort during the months before her passing.
Memorial gifts may be made to Vascular Cures (Pacific Vascular Research Foundation) or Youth in Arts.
