    From the article....
    Earlier this year, Forbes magazine ranked her as the 369th richest person in the world, with an estimated net worth of $2.5 billion
    -----------------------------------------------------------------------
    ya'll that means that there are 368 people who have more than $2.5 BILLION in the bank!Holy Cow! And we still have poverty in this country..very sad...
    ---------------------------------------------------------------------
    Before her son's death of a heart attack in 1982, she told interviewers she would not talk about him "because terrible things can happen to people these days."

    After her son died, she sued the estate for money and property she said her son had borrowed, and an eviction notice was served on her son's widow, Mimi. Mimi Panzirer said afterward that the legal costs wiped her out and "to this day I don't know why they did it."

    Now that's just pitiful....
    Greedy people suck.........funny how they are so darned charmed in life, I wonder at what point they figure out that they couldn't bring it with them to wherever they ended up..

    I think she only cared about herself, and ultimately she must have died very lonely..I think I would much rather live this life modestly with good friends and family to love and that loves me back than to let greed get in the way of it all. More money than you could ever spend would probably be fun for a minute, but no thanks..

    Wonder who she left her wealth to?
    The article sure doesn't make her sound like a very nice person. How sad if she was worth billions and died lonely.
