Who Was Helen F. Miller??

Two emails to Howard Nelson, CEO of the Pennsylvania SPCA, requesting information on Helen F. Miller, who died and left 2.1 million dollars to the Pennsylvania SPCA to establish a shelter in Potter County, have gone unanswered.

After reading articles about the bequest in both the city papers and local papers, I have continually wondered who this woman was that amassed this large amount of money to benefit animals.

None of the articles I have read had any background on Ms. Miller, and searches on the internet have turned up nothing.

You can bet your butt that if I or my organization were the beneficiary of a bequest of this size, that I would publicize the story of this woman's life, how she amassed this money, and why she felt so strongly as to donate it to an organization. I certainly would not ignore requests for information about her.


If any of my readers knows about this wonderful woman, maybe you could fill us in with some information about her.

Not sure who Ms. Miller was, but have heard some interesting information about this so called spca. Is it true that this facility will be used as a dog prison ? As in bringing animals to the area from Pittsburg and Philadelphia that involved in court litigation i.e. dog fighting. These animals could be here for a long time due to the court process. Do we want this area to be a dumping ground for the big city animal control problems ?

She was actually known as Helen Green, and she is buried in Eulalia Cemetery. She was a resident of Potter County for many years, but it is believed that she passed away a resident of Florida.

You People are amazing... Once again there might be something comming to the area that would no dout bring jobs and money to this DIEING County... and all you are going to do is complain... I would rather see alot of little compainies come to the area and bring 10-15 jobs each then that 1 BIG saving grace that everyone seems to hope for... Did anyone learn a thing with the last BIG ONE... My mommy always told me not to put all of my eggs in one basket...
