Woman recovers ashes she accidentally sold

August 8, 2007


— A woman recovered a ceramic turtle containing the ashes of her husband's previous wife Tuesday after accidentally selling it for 50 cents at a rummage sale.

Anita Lewis of Elmira said she didn't know it held the ashes when she sold the turtle Saturday to a woman.

When she realized her mistake, she began a frantic search. An anonymous caller's tip led her to a Salvation Army Thrift Shop, where she found the turtle.
