MARSHFIELD, Wis (WSAU-Wheeler News)  Funeral services will be held tomorrow for Marge Wolf, the Marshfield grocer who foiled a hold-up last summer by offering a would-be robber candy instead of cash. The 97-year-old Wolf died Friday, less than three months after retiring and closing the neighborhood store she ran for 57 years.

She was best known for selling candy and other treats to generations of nearby school kids. That was until last July, when she made national news after a 13-year-old boy tried robbing her store at knife-point -- and he ran off after Marge only offered him Tootsie Rolls.

18-year-old Cordell Ellingson of Arpin is scheduled to go on trial March 25th, after he allegedly organized the purported heist. The 13-year-old was referred to juvenile authorities.
