GREENFIELD, Mo. – University of Missouri Extension Human Development Specialist Saralee Jamieson will conduct a class at 9:30 a.m., Friday, March 14 at the Senior Center in Greenfield on the topic of “Who Gets Grandma’s Yellow Pie Plate?”

This workshop promises to help family members improve communication in order to deal more effectively with the problems and issues related to transferring non-titled property.

Register for the program by March 12 by calling Tina Brownsberger at the Dade County Extension Office, 417-637-2112.

Who gets personal property is an issue frequently ignored until a crisis occurs.  Jamieson says it is often assumed to be an unimportant or an issue that will take care of itself.

“The battle comes from the fact that money can be divided evenly among heirs, but special items that have sentimental value can’t be cut in half,” said Jamieson. “These are also the things most likely to divide families when it is time to distribute estate assets because they trigger special memories among family members.”

The transfer of non-titled property is also an issue that impacts individuals regardless of their financial worth, heritage, or cultural background.

University of Missouri Extension programs focus on the high-priority needs of Missourians. Each county extension center, with oversight by locally elected and appointed citizens, is your local link to practical education on almost anything. More information on this topic is available online at
