Ogden told CBS Boston that she was visiting her grandmother’s grave and then her late husband’s when the crime occurred.
Ogden said she had just gone to the bank and had $1,000 in cash, but she was more upset about a $20 bill she had in the purse that she'd taken out of her husband’s wallet after he died.
She kept it as a memory.
"I've had a good life until this, what are you going to do?" Ogden told the station.
