Why would you make out a check to a individual and not the name of the business?? Would you write a check to the cashier at a grocery store? Use your heads people! She scammed you!
The company had her do that. She was to cash the check, take out her commission and then send them the order and money.

I know wrote:
The monument company spoke to the police about the situation. But it takes customers who were stolen from to press charges. The company never received any money from her on these monuments or even knew they were ordered. She was not there employee. She used them just as she used the customers.
the monument people did not talk with the police when they came in to office and
fired her last summer. she was their employee. why else would she have their receipt book.

She took my money also ,I buried my husband , two days later I went to her to put a death date on his head stone that was bought from her a several years ago . I had no reason not to trust her .
I was still very upset at the lost of my husband of over fifty years at the time . She took my check , cashed it and kept the money . Never bothered her one bit that I was crying over the loss of my husband .
I have no pity for anyone that steals money that was meant for a dead loved one .
At least the funeral home didn't steal the ten thousand dollars I was out on his funeral .
I filed a police report on her , hope she does some time in the pen but she probably will get off .

She stole my money, also. I know she is already out-she needs to be in prison. She is a sorry person.

She buddied up to my mother years ago. Did some wall paper for her. Was friends with Mary R. who was handling Momma's money. She sold her a prepaid funeral plan. Guess I need to check that out. Never trusted either of those women.

Imo ,there is nothing worse than a thief. and to think a woman her age that knows how hard it is to survive these days is so sorry. she should be locked up and the keys thrown away.

Well no one can control their children when they are adults and yet parents, grandparents and other family members suffer embarrassment when they make serious mistakes. I would hope people would give the same consideration to carol and Kenny because one cannot control parents or grandparents. Please go easier on this and let legal actions do their job.

her kids are not responsible for what she has done, have respect for both of them and I know this has really shocked and hurt them both but she deserves prison. I feel sorry for them because of the hurt and embarrassment they are suffering but feel sorry for the people that she stole from. It isn't easy for a lot of us to come up with the money to buy monuments with.

It takes a really special person to make a mistake like this! This one is unforgivable.

What she did was wrong, plain and simple. She should go to prison just like anyone else would.

The sad part is very few people that work for the city or county or other government connected offices around here have done time for stealing. I know this woman didn't work for any of the above but I doubt she will do time.
Whatever happened to the clerk that stole or the lady at Brad or the dope dealing clerk?

Yes she did VERY wrong !! Can she make money to repay these folks in prison? To repay she has to work.

Yes addiction is a sickness. But nevertheless I couldn't explain it to to folks on here.... Yes she took this money and yes Sydney's mother will get her money back. I have been in touch with her and am waiting for the second receipt. Which I have been waiting for for several weeks now. When I get it she will get a check and she knows this.
