Billie Hurst worked as a librarian at Southwest Missouri State University for 30 years, yet she never got around to cashing paychecks totaling more than $100,000.

The 72-year-old woman got the money anyway Friday when State Treasurer Wendell Bailey presented an $88,100.85 check to Hurst's cousin and guardian, Frances Jane Gleghorn, after a special act of the Legislature made that possible.Bailey's office said it already had reissued checks amounting to $20,024.53 for uncashed checks not more than 5 years old, bringing the total reimbursement to $108.125.33.
