Roberta Langtry, an unassuming school teacher in Toronto, hid her riches — gained through shrewd savings and investments in stocks and bonds. But she always gave large donations to those in need. Now, after having made her transition last year at age 89, her donation of $4.3 million to the Nature Conservancy of Canada — the largest ever received by the group — will purchase acreage she held dear, and preserve it for generations of school teachers to come.
