The daughter of the beloved Marshfield grocery store owner who passed away this March says there is still no sign of one of her mother's possessions.

Shirley Southworth says a quilt made for her mother, Marge Wolf, was accidentally donated to St. Vincent de Paul in Marshfield sometime in April.

Southworth tells NewsChannel 7, the quilt, which was made by family members for her parents' 60th wedding anniversary, was in bag that ended up in a “donation” pile while they were sorting through her mother's apartment following her death.

Wolf, 97, gained national attention after she stood her ground against a masked teenage robber last summer. Wolf offered tootsie rolls, but declined to hand over cash.

Wolf owned and operated Wolf's Grocery Store in Marshfield for more than five decades.

Southworth said St. Vincent de Paul is aware of the situation. She says there is also a possibility that the handmade quilt could be in the donated items area of the business.

If you bought the quilt or know who did, call NewsChannel 7 at (715) 845-0077 so we can put you in touch with Marge Wolf's daughter.
