From the “You can’t take it with you desk” of Yahoo news.
A reclusive copper heiress who spent the past decades living in New York City hospitals has left most of her $400 million fortune to charity--and a nurse who was randomly assigned to care for her 20 years ago.
For some reason I found this story richly intriguing. It also reminded me of Leonora Helmsley’s passing in 2007. She was the wife of the millionaire hotelier Harry, who came to be known as “the queen of mean” She gave most o f her fortune to her dog, (a Maltese named trouble) who passed away himself earlier this month.
Clark was the daughter of Montana Sen. William Clark, who was once the second-richest man in the country. According to Clark's will, her nurse spent more time with her than anyone else and became a "friend and loyal companion," The Post reported. Clark had no children, and specified in her will that she had no interest in leaving money to theÂ descendantsÂ of her half-siblings or other relatives.
