Ann Logan was devastated when the planter went missing from outside her home in Swinden Lane, Colne a month ago.
Despite details of the distressing theft receiving an incredible 16,000 shares on social media there has been no trace of it since.
"I cannot understand why someone would want to take it," said Ann (59) who lives with her husband, Steven.
"It is not expensive but means the world to us because of what it contains."
The small, plastic terracotta tub was one of around 15 pots gracing the garden of Ann and Steven's cottage garden. She placed her sister Linda's ashes in the planter after her death in March last year when a friend bought her a plant called 'Little Linda.'
Known as a kalmia latifolia, the plant is an evergreen shrub that produces colourful flowers in the spring and summer. The pot also had a card on with an image of the plant in full bloom and the name 'Little Linda.'
Linda, who who had suffered with multiple sclerosis from the age of 29, was diagnosed with cancer a year before her death at the age of 57.
Ann, who also has an older sister Karen, said it would mean the world if the planter was returned to her.
She added: "Perhaps if whoever took it knew what it contained they would think about returning it."
