Actress from ‘Andy Griffith Show” Left a $100,000 Trust Fund for Local Police

Uncategorized Jan 17, 2019

Do you have a Florida will? Have you decided who you would like to inherit from your Palm Beach estate? Is there an agency or charity that you wish to leave money to in a Florida will? In order to insure that the people you wish to inherit your assets actually inherit them, you should meet with an experienced estate planning lawyer to create a will or trust. Probate lawyers know that, in your Florida will, you can specify exactly where you would like your money to end up when you pass away. For example, Fox News recently reported that Frances Bavier, an actress known for her role as Aunt Bee on “The Andy Griffith Show”, left $100,000 to the local police force of the town in which she lived. Although her will was not a Florida will, estate lawyers encounter wills that are similar. Bavier’s will specifically stated that $100,000 would be placed in a trust fund for the police there. Although she died back in 1989 at the age of 86, the trust fund still exists. The $100,000 is kept in trust, while the interest is divided among the police staff members as a yearly bonus.
