The estate of Mildred Othmer, following her death in 1998, was $599,000,000; her husband, Donald Othmer, who died in 1995, left $210,000,000. Most of this was donated to charity and such large sums quickly made headlines. The article details the behind the scenes goings-on and multiple revisions of the wills.
