Duluth woman left fortune for abandoned pets, zoo critters
Katherine Hooey of Duluth lived a quiet, simple life.
She wasn't a big spender. She had no interest in fashion and frills. And the last thing she wanted was attention.
But her lifelong love of dogs -- and all animals -- is making a big impact two years after her death at age 62. Despite modest means, Hooey left an estate worth $335,000. She left it all to two local animal shelters and the Duluth zoo. Each recently got their one-third shares.
