Genevieve carefully stocked away hoards of cash over the course of four decades. Every paycheck was split into bills, fun money and strict savings. No one knew that Genevieve even had savings – let alone, such a large account! All of that time, Genevieve was planning something incredible. She wanted to use that money to make a difference. There was no need for fancy cars, a big home or gaudy jewelry. With no children of her own, nor a close-knit family, the kids she taught were always at the forefront of her mind!
After Genevieve passed away in 2011 at the age of 88, her possessions were divided amongst loved ones and friends. But when the topic of money was brought up, everyone was blown away by what the will noted. After 45 years as a teacher and several years working with the district after her retirement, Genevieve amassed a small fortune.
