  1. , I’ll just take you out of my will. We had a good laugh about that and soon forgot about it. Incidentally, there were two women named Dagmar Davis. One was the booimobkle patron and the other had been a nice library volunteer.Fast forward several decades . Martha Palmer, Director retired in 1996 and Marcia Clontz was appointed Director of the Nantahala Regional Library. One day, Marcia was in a meeting with several board members when she was interrupted for a telephone call. It was an attorney from Walterboro, SC who was probating the estate of Dagmar Davis and the library was a beneficary. We thought that it was the helpful library volunteer who had named us in her will.The attorney said he had difficulty locating the will. Dagmar had some type of dementia in her later years and was placed in a nursing home. The attorney’s secretary spent hours in Dagmar’s house after her death looking for a will. The only will that could be found was an old will with the Nantahala Regional Library and a Reading Room at the Christian Science Church in Reading Pennsylvania listed as beneficiaries.Over the next several months the attorney called several times to assure us that we receive the most amount of money possible from the estate. When her home was cleared out it was discovered that Dagmar collected antique toys. The attorney contacted an antique toy association and scheduled an auction of the toys. The auction was so large that it was conducted over two weekends. By the time the estate was settled the Nantahala Regional Library was to receive $450,000. The attorney and his secretary were so excitled to have found so much money for the library that they hand carried the first check to the library. With the check they brought photos of Dagmar and her husband. We realized then, that the money had come from the booimobkle patron, Dagmar Davis, who had threatened to take the library out of her will when the booimobkle couldn’t get through her new gate so many years ago.
