Elizabeth Edwards, a political spouse whose battle against breast cancer and marital problems made her a public figure, made no mention of her estranged husband in her will.
In a last will and testament filed Dec. 22 in Orange County Superior Court, Elizabeth Edwards named Cate Edwards, a lawyer and her eldest child, as executor of her estate.
Edwards announced in January 2010 that she had separated from husband John Edwards after 32 years of marriage.
The former U.S. senator and two-time presidential candidate had an extramarital affair in which he fathered a daughter with a campaign videographer.
Elizabeth Edwards, who died Dec. 7, six days after she signed the will, left all her possessions to her three children.
"All of my furniture, furnishings, household goods, jewelry, china, silverware and personal effects and any automobiles owned by me at the time of my death, I give and bequeath to my children," the will states.
