German woman leaves 7.5 million dollars to her neighbors

Renate Wedel has lived in the Weiperfelden district of Waldsolms in Hesse, central Germany, with her husband, Alfred Wedel, since 1975, according to a statement from the Waldsolms district, which is made up of 6 villages.

Alfred, who had been “successful” and “active” on the stock market, died in 2014, and Renate, who had been receiving care in a retirement home in Frankfurt since 2016, died in December 2019 at the age of 81.

In April of this year, the district said, it was informed that Renate left him a bank balance, stocks and valuables.

Renate’s sister, who was her original heiress, had already passed away, local media outlet Hessenschau reported.

The news came as a shock to the authorities. “I thought at first it just wasn’t possible, I thought a comma had slipped, something is wrong,” local mayor Bernd Heine told Hessenschau.

The municipality also inherited a property in Weiperfelden, which was initially left as an inheritance, but was refused by the original heir due to the cost of maintaining the house and outbuildings and because the residents’ contributions were due for work on a local road.

The community is obliged to use the inheritance, valued at 6.2 million euros, for “collective equipment and infrastructure”.

“The community of Waldsolms posthumously thanks the Wedels for this important legacy,” the community said in a statement.

“We will manage it very responsibly, develop our community for the good of all and keep an honorable memory of both,” he added.

Local residents have ideas on what the money should be spent on. Heine told Hessenschau that money was needed for bike paths, buildings and a kindergarten, while residents suggested the money should be spent on an outdoor swimming pool, public transport and facilities for local children.
