Millionaire Nurse
While nurses make a good living, they don’t make enough money to become millionaires unless they never spent a dime of their income. A nurse named Hadassah Peri was working for a home health care agency, when she was assigned to work for a woman named Huguette Clark. Clark was the daughter of a very wealthy copper miner. Rather than going to fancy parties and spending time with people of influence, she chose to barricade herself inside her home which was set up like a hospital room. She was surrounded by her art and music collections. Her room also contained thousands of French dolls, which she had been collecting over the years. The only person she was close to was was her nurse. Each night, she would call Peri, a mother of three, to say goodnight. The two forged an unbreakable bond. When Clark became too weak and feeble to make the call herself, Peri began making the calls herself. Over the years, Clark lavished her with gifts. She owns a 2001 Bentley Arnage sedan worth $204,000, a Lincoln Navigator SUV worth $42,000, and a three story waterfront home in Manhattan Beach, which is just one of the 5 homes that she owns. When Clark was 104 years old, she passed away, leaving Peri to inherit $33.6 million along with her collection of priceless dolls.
