We are saddened to report the passing of Jennifer Cox, wife of Dennis Cox. Both her and her husband were a long time members and contributors to the Sloan’s Lake Citizens’ Group. She will be missed.

Jennifer Ann Cox, 66, of Lawrence passed away April 10, 2015 at her home surrounded by family and friends. She was born July 25, 1948. Jennifer was the daughter of Jennings and Mildred (Fisher) McKinley.

She married Dennis Lee Cox on June 1, 1969, in Lawrence. The two moved to Denver in 1973 and spent 40 years there before returning back to Lawrence in 2013.

In Jennifer’s spare time, she enjoyed playing piano, a good game of chess, working on crossword puzzles and more recently Sudoku. She liked to be outside whether it was gardening, camping or cycling. She had a love for attending Lawrence high school reunions, and also for cats and KU athletics.

Survivors include her husband, Dennis Cox; brother, Rowe (Becky) McKinley; niece Alexis Jones; nephew, Noel McKinley; great niece and nephew, Lucy and Felix Jones; brother-in-law, Ray Cox; two nieces, Jan Goff and Kristi Bray; nephews, Monte, Jeff, Tim and Mike Cox; and many close friends from Denver. She was preceded in death by her parents and brother-in-law Gene Cox.

There are no services planned at this time.

Memorial contributions may be made in her name to Douglas County Visiting Nurses Association and/or the The Sloan’s Lake Citizens’ Group (Denver) and may be sent in care of Warren-McElwain Mortuary.

WEDNESDAY: Neighborhood Candidates Forum

20150324_115936_Espinoza-Shepherd

Please join the Sloan’s Lake Citizens Group for a candidates forum this Wednesday, April 8th from 7:00-8:30 pm at Family Star Montessori.

Sloan’s Lake Citizens Group (SLCG) has invited neighboring organizations Jefferson Park United Neighbors (JPUN) and Federal Boulevard Partnership (FBP) to join them in presenting a neighborhood candidates forum. This forum will give voters an opportunity to hear from both the Council District 1 candidates as well as the candidates for Auditor address issues important to our local community. Our State House District 4 Representative, Dan Pabon, has agreed to be the moderator.

District 1 incumbent Susan Shepherd and challenger Rafael Espinoza have both confirmed their participation in the forum. Also, the two candidates for City Auditor Chris Nevitt and Timothy O’Brien have confirmed attendance, though they will only briefly address their candidacies at the start of the forum.

The District 1 candidates are provided time for opening and closing statements. Each organization will have five questions for the candidates – fifteen in total. Of the five questions from each organization, two will be “rapid-fire” where the candidates will have 30 seconds to respond.

The forum is open to the public and for those of you that don’t walk, there are parking lots behind the Family Star building that can be accessed off W. 23rd and 22nd Avenues.
