INDIANAPOLIS – A retired Indianapolis school teacher who died in February at age 94 has stunned a local cancer-research company by leaving it $1.9 million.
Margaret M. Weeks nearly $2 million bequest to Hoosier Oncology Group is the second-largest in the Indianapolis companys history and one of its most surprising gifts.
It came out of left field for us. We totally werent expecting it, Chris Fausel, chairman of Hoosier Oncologys board, told the Indianapolis Star.
Hoosier Oncology Group spokesman Randy Dillinger said the organization knows little about Weeks, whose gift was announced Thursday.
There isnt much that we know about her, which makes this kind of a mysterious gift to us, but one that were extremely grateful for, he said.
The donation was made from a trust established by Weeks in 2001.
