Lost wedding ring makes its way home to Greensboro WWII vet

GREENSBORO, N.C. — A lost wedding ring has made its way home to a 90-year-old Greensboro man who had spent weeks looking for it.

The Greensboro News & Record reported that William Beavers found his ring after having to celebrate his 60th anniversary with his wife without it.

The World War II veteran said he noticed it was gone after he left the doctor’s office.

Mary Beavers, his wife, figures the ring fell off his finger sometime that day when he went to the doctor’s office and ended up in the cuff of the pants he was wearing.

And from there it somehow ended up on the brown-and-gold bathroom floor — unnoticed until last week.

Keeping a sense of humor about them, William Beavers and his wife, Mary, laugh at her comment "To me, he's half dressed," as she referred to the missing wedding ring William wore for nearly 59 years. After experiencing recent weight loss, Beavers' ring fit loosely on his finger before falling off somewhere during the course of a day. (ROB BROWN/News & Record)
