LeeAnn Dolick-Cox Memorial Scholarship Endowment
LeeAnn Marie Dolick-Cox was born March 17, . She grew up in New Palestine and graduated from New Palestine High School in 1992. She was a member of the Marching Band for one year and a member of the Color Guard for 3 years. After graduation, LeeAnn attended Purdue University and worked at Steak-N-Shake where she met her future husband. She got married October 14, 2000 and was diagnosed with Acute Myeloid Leukemia that following February. LeeAnn lost her battle with cancer on October 22, 2001.
LeeAnn possessed both an innocence and slyness at the same time. She was honest, witty, beautiful, sweet, loving and kind hearted. She always put others first. She had energy and a smile that lit up the room when she entered. She was quick to joke and the first to forgive. LeeAnn would befriend anyone and made everyone feel comfortable and welcomed. She was the type of person that you could call in the middle of the night and she would drop everything she was doing just to listen. LeeAnn also had an amazing ability to find a silver lining in the darkest of clouds.
LeeAnn meant many things to many people but when you ask, everyone will agree that she was the true meaning of a friend. She may be gone, but LeeAnn will not be forgotten by those whom were lucky enough to know her.
