‘Found money’ goes to Swimming Pool Fund

Theresa and Brian Tisthammer with the chest of drawers where they found $330 in cash.A local couple’s discovery of cash, hidden in an old chest of drawers, recently became a gift to the Albion Swimming Pool Fund.
Brian and Theresa Tisthammer purchased the home of the late Catharine Nore, 1202 West Church Street, in the summer of 2012. Catharine had passed away in July of 2012 at age 95.
Along with the house, the Tisthammers purchased some of Catharine’s furniture, including a chest of drawers.
Nearly a year later in June of this year, they were cleaning up one of the old bureaus for use in a bedroom. They discovered $330 in cash hidden away under contact paper that lined one of the drawers.
The Tisthammers contacted Catharine’s daughter, Betsy, who lives in Illinois. They notified her of their find, and mailed her a check for the $330.
“It was a great thing for this young couple to do,” said Betsy, who in turn decided to use this honest gesture to benefit a local cause — the Albion Swimming Pool.
The funds were donated earlier this month from the Catharine Nore Trust to the pool fund as a memorial to Mitzi Fox, and the donation was included in the Sept. 16 total.
