Millionairess leaves nurse $34 million


Brooklyn nurse, Hadassah Peri has inherited $34 million upon the death of New York copper-mining millionairess Huguette Clark for whom Peri has been a private nurse since 1991. In addition to the sum, Clark, who passed away in May, has left Peri an extensive doll collection worth millions.

The article, Huguette Clark, NYC Heiress, Leaves $34 Million to Nurse explores the ‘kiss of death’ phenomenon of sudden wealth that often plagues lottery winners who are ill-equipped to deal with the lifestyle change. Psychology experts suggest that Peri, a devoted caretaker, is an example of a grounded personality type who is likely to sidestep this kind of windfall curse.

What do you think? Has your job made you a more grounded person? And more importantly, what would you do with an extra $34 million in the bank??

    I wish something like that would happen to me.

    I would rather have the appreciation of 34 million patients I’d helped.

    I would pay off my student loans first!

    If I received that much money, I’d donate a large chunk of it to charities of my choice…How many houses and automobiles can you use at once? I’d also set up accounts so I wouldn’t have to worry about finances in the future.

    I would retire my parents and set up a college fund for my nephew. Then I could pay for my wedding and go on one heck of a shoe shopping spree
