Woman searching for ‘Mother’s ring’ she lost on New Year’s Eve

Spread the love

Marie Francis was thrilled when she opened her Christmas gift from her parents.

It was a beautiful mother’s ring. She loved it.

And now, she’s lost it.

That ring – engraved with the names of her four children, made from their birthstones, is missing.  That ring that meant so much, is suddenly gone. Marie tells me she’s heartbroken,

“It didn’t cost much but we are a family that doesn’t have much money so the price isn’t the issue. My mom worked two jobs this year to be able to make ends meet and to make sure all her kids had something for Christmas this year something that she hasn’t always been able to do.”

The Jamestown mom says she had to go to WCA Hospital in Jamestown on New Year’s Eve. That’s where she thinks she lost it. She thinks she may have left it in the pocket of the gown she had on.

She was in room 124.

Now Marie is hoping someone can help – that someone might have seen it at some point. She’s checked with the hospital but they haven’t turned up anything just yet.

For Marie – who’s gone through some very tough times lately, that ring was a special source of strength and she hopes and prays she’ll get it back.

If you or someone you know recently found this ring…  feel free to email us at maryfriona@totallybuffalo.com and we will let Marie know!

    I am Marie’s mother and I want to thank you for the outreach you have given her. I know she is heart broken over this and it would be wonderful if she did get the ring back. Thank You
