Elderly AL woman lived so frugally her friends worried about her finances--but then she bequeathed over $2 million to build a church camp.
"The members at the defunct Avondale Presbyterian Church were worried about Bette Wilson after her husband, Ross, died. She was in her eighties, living alone in a tiny, dilapidated house across the street.... When her microwave oven stopped working, the former church members didn't think she had enough money for a new appliance and they gave her the one from the shut-down church building. They had no idea that she was secretly a multi-millionaire." --Greg Garrison, www.AL.com
