Former teacher dies at 94 and gives $8.4 million to charity
Margaret Southern was a special education teacher from the Greenville, S.C., area, and she died at age 94 in October 2012. But after she passed, $8.4 million of her fortunes — saved over a modest and simple life — went to Community Foundation of Greenville, which benefits children and animals, according to Greenville Online.
“What’s exceptional is she didn’t spend it on herself and she was able to accumulate a lot of money she wanted to direct to her dearest charities,” said Bob Morris, president of Community Foundation, to Greenville Online. “I haven’t met a lot of people like that.”
