Special Guest at Inheritance Program

By  Sara Croymans, Extension Educator — Family Resiliency  

On April 20, one hundred participants at the Senior Spring Fling in Worthington learned practical information about the inheritance and transfer of non-titled personal property at a presentation of Who Gets Grandma's Yellow Pie Plate?™ (WGGYPP).

A highlight of the day was the attendance of Marge Reusch, owner of the original yellow pie plate.

Marge's daughter Andrea helped name the program when she worked in the Chippewa County Extension Office.

WGGYPP covers the importance of planning for both titled and non-titled property, six key decision making factors in non-titled property transfer, and strategies to jump-start conversations about inheritance. A workbook is available to assist families in making these decisions. 

The WGGYPP program is available for groups upon request. The Nobles County Senior Concerns Committee sponsored this event.
