Charlotte died without a will.
The beach house, while paid off, was in her name.
Dorothy didn’t have a job, and Dorothy didn’t have a home.
Charlotte’s heirs were her seven older siblings. Giving the property on the beach to the camp, as a memorial, was an obvious choice. But it is not what they did.
They sold the house to Dot for a dollar and let her sell it to the Camp at fair market value and set herself up in Newberg. Everyone was certain that it is what Charlotte would have wanted.
