Nicknamed “Foo-foo,” Walt often referred to her as “the real-life Mary Poppins.” As a housekeeper for the Disney family, she received a few shares of Disney stock as a Christmas gift as well as for birthdays and special events. She lived frugally throughout her life, apparently not knowing the rising value of the stock…actually made her a multi-millionaire at the time of her death!
