WEDDING RING LOST IN GROCERY BAG RETURNED TO STORE WORKER

CHELMSFORD, Mass. (AP) — A Massachusetts woman says she worried she had lost her wedding ring forever after it fell off her finger as she bagged groceries.

Jan McGuire tells WBZ-TV she was bagging groceries at a Market Basket in Chelmsford when she noticed her ring was missing.

The 80-year-old Lowell woman was heartbroken because her late husband gave her the ring 59 years ago.

McGuire posted about the missing ring on Facebook. She says she knew it had fallen into a customer’s bag because she hadn’t heard it hit the floor.

Someone returned it to the store’s customer service a few days later.

McGuire says she “couldn’t stop crying” when she heard the ring had been returned.

She says she will wear the ring around her neck until she can get it resized.
