A trust has been created for the children of an attorney who was killed by her husband last week.
Mary Jane Frisby, 44, a former Barnes & Thornburg partner, was found dead in her Brownsburg home by police Aug. 26 hours after her husband, David, climbed atop a downtown Indianapolis parking garage and committed suicide.
The trust for Sam Frisby and Cassandra (Casey) Frisby, has been set up at The National Bank of Indianapolis, 107 N. Pennsylvania St., Indianapolis, IN 46204. All donations should be made payable to "Trust for the Children of Mary Jane Vincent Frisby."
A first-generation American of British parents, Mary Jane Frisby graduated summa cum laude from Indiana University School of Law – Indianapolis in 2000. She started that same year at Barnes & Thornburg, where she worked in the intellectual property group.

In addition to her two children, Frisby is survived by her parents Geoffrey and Adele Vincent; sister, Wendy Stoll; nephew, Ben Stoll; niece, Lucy Stoll; and several relatives in England, Scotland, Canada, and New Zealand. She was preceded in death by her brother, Christopher Vincent.
