Windsor’s “Nervy” Thief Offered a Second Chance

The proprietor of the Ethel-Mary Store, Ethel Elliott, was willing to give the “nervy” thief who stole $50.00 from her purse that she left in her car parked in front of her store, a second chance.


Fifty dollars in 1944 was worth about $700.00 in today’s money. She said she had planned to use the money to pay her taxes.


Whether or not the thief returned the money to her or if she gave the thief’s name to the police remains a mystery but her willingness to give a second chance to a wrongdoer is a testament to her character.
