TOPEKA, Kan. (WIBW) - Shawnee County commissioners accepted a ceremonial check Monday morning.

Melody and Erik Oxy presented the $7,000 gift in honor of the daughter, Shaylee, who died in a car accident in November 2011. The donation funded construction of a trellis that was unveiled last month at the Ted Ensley Gardens at Lake Shawnee.

Melody said she and Shaylee spent a lot of time at the lake, so it seemed like a natural place for a memorial.
