A mid-Michigan woman who lost her class ring over 45 years ago is finally finding her prized possession.
What started out as a seemingly normal Facebook post eventually turned into a reunion Mary Gazall-Beardslee never saw coming.
“I got a message in my messenger saying I had something that might belong to you. So I was very careful before opening it.
The message Gazall-Beardslee received was not spam.
“I went to her profile and saw ‘Please share this’ and it was a photo of my class ring,” Gazall-Beardslee said.
The class ring she lost 46 years ago after graduating from Powers Catholic High School in Flint.
“I said: ‘this is my ring! “Said Gazall-Beardslee.
Chris Nord is the person who posted the post to Facebook. The two met on Tuesday to reunite Gazall-Beardslee with her ring.
“Chris initially found my ring, his brother found it in a box that was in the trash,” Gazall-Beardslee said.
He saved it from the garbage and tried to find its owner for the past two decades.
“He said he had it for 20 years. So we don’t know what happened the first 26 years,” Gazall-Beardslee said.
Gazall-Beardslee has never forgotten his ring for all these 46 years.
“I had mentioned this to my husband over the years. I was like, ‘I wonder what happened to my ring?’” Gazall-Beardslee said.
