PRINCE ALBERT, Sask. — A Saskatchewan woman who was a teenager when she lost her mother’s ring has found it more than 30 years later in a thrift shop.

Chris Moody was shopping at Value Village in Prince Albert recently when a ring caught her eye at the jewelry counter.

She took a closer look and was pretty sure it was the ring she had lost years before.

She told two employees that it was her mother’s ring and would have the initials “W.E.” on it.

It did, and even though it had a price of $ 80 on it, the clerks returned it to her.

Moody says her mom died more than 25 years ago, so finding her ring “brought her a little bit closer.”

The ring was a gift from Moody’s grandfather to her mother, but Moody liked to borrow it. She was no more than 17 when she lost the jewelry while she was out roller skating one night.

She says she’s very grateful to the clerks for giving her back the ring.

“These two girls said they didn’t care if they got in trouble. They didn’t care if they lost their jobs. But they said they had to give me my ring back and it was such an incredible act of kindness,” Moody said.

“It’s not something that (the girls) do, and not something they would probably do again, but they did that day.”
