MONITOR TOWNSHIP, Mich. (AP) - A 1954 high school class ring has been returned to its owner in Michigan nearly 60 years after it went missing.

Dolores Rogers of Monitor Township recently received a call from a former classmate whose sister had found a Visitation High School class ring with the initials DMB in their deceased mother’s jewelry box, The Bay City Times reports (https://bit.ly/YRczSn). The classmate asked if she remembered anyone with those initials.

“I thought back to our class and realized that I was the only one,” she said.

Her maiden name is Barron and although her legal name is Mary, she has always used “M” as her middle initial.

She said she can’t think of how her classmate’s mother came to have the ring. She said she lost it after graduation and might have been at a dance near the classmate’s house.

Rogers said she was stunned to see that the ring still fits. She acknowledges she can be a bit absent-minded about where she has left things. When she tried on her class ring Tuesday, she took off her wedding band and put it somewhere in her house.

“I looked all morning for it and I can’t find it,” she said. “It’s around here somewhere. This has happened before.”
