The wallet stolen from her 75 years ago is finally back home!


An 89-year-old Illinois woman had an unexpected reunion when her stolen wallet was returned to her 75 years after it was taken. A plumber working to convert the Centralia High School building to a church discovered a stash of 15 wallets in the wall of a girls' bathroom. The wallets had been stripped of cash, but still contained school IDs that identified their owners as students from the mid-1940s. Betty Sissom was excited to have the wallet returned since it contained a photo of her brother, who died while serving in World War Two.
