Hoosier philanthropist Marilyn Glick died at her home in Indianapolis Friday. She was 90 years old. The announcement came from the Gene B. Glick Company, the real estate development firm that bears her husband‘s name.
The couple funded the Glick Eye Institute at the Indiana University School of Medicine, the Indianapolis Cultural Trail, the Indiana Authors Award, The Glick Fund of the Central Indiana Community Foundation (CICF), The Glick Fund of the Jewish Federation of Greater Indianapolis, and a wide array of charitable projects benefiting the arts, education, public health, and aid organizations throughout Central Indiana.
Mrs. Glick graduated in 1940 from Shortridge High School in Indianapolis. She and her husband had four daughters. They celebrated 65 years of marriage on January 7, 2012.
A memorial service is planned for Monday, March 26 at Indianapolis Hebrew Congregation. The family asks that a memorial donation be made, in lieu of flowers, to the Glick Eye Institute at Indiana University School of Medicine.
