Who Wants To Be A Verna Oller?

To hear folks tell it, Verna Oller was a proud cheapskate to the very end of her 98 years.

She cut her own hair.
She bought only thrift store clothes.
She refused to buy shoelaces.
She was tightfisted her whole life.

Until the day she died, and left $4.5 million to the children of Long Beach, Washington so the town could build the swimming pool she never had as a kid. And the leftover money was given out in scholarships and teaching grants.

You can never tell...........
