Welch finds ring lost for more than 40 years

Article Image Alt Text

Jerry Welch, left, presented Tom Zabokrtsky, right, with his class ring, which had been missing since 1975.

Jerry Welch, of Washington, was cleaning out his late mother’s house when, on the weekend of June 7-8, he found a purse his mother placed in a peculiar location. He searched the purse and came across a man’s Washington High class ring from 1977. It had a garnett stone. He put it into his pocket to take a closer look at it later.

On Saturday evening Welch polished it up and began his inspection. He noticed three initials placed on the inside and decided to post it onto the Face Book group “You’re probably from Washington.” He took one photo and posted it June 16.
