This inheritance is spreading across New York.
Karen Parker Gray, an Upper East Side heiress who passed away after a heart attack in August, left generous sums for several New Yorkers, The New York Daily News reports.
A 10-page, handwritten will, details the amounts Gray intended to share with those who helped her.
Among the recipients are her hairstylists, a doorman, a housekeeper, her “favorite coat check woman” and Jenny Kim, 60, of Echo Spa, which Gray reportedly visited twice a week for 12 years. Grey would specifically ask for Kim to massage her and chat about her family. She left Kim $50,000 in the unwitnessed will due to her “love and devotion.”
“I feel good that she remembered me like that — not about the money,” Kim told the Daily News via a Korean translator.
The full amount of Gray’s fortune remains unknown to the public.
Of the $3 million shared in the will, other major recipients include the Metropolitan Museum of Art and the Heard Museum in Arizona, where Gray owned property.
