In 1973 on Chicago’s South Side, Karen Autenrieth noticed her wedding ring had come loose from her hand and landed in a nearby snowdrift, ultimately becoming lost. Flash forward to 2021, a Facebook posting for a different wedding ring found in the same area lead local historians with the Ridge Historical Society -Carol Flynn & Linda Lamberty- on a mission to reunite a lost ring with “RA to K.B. 4-16-66” inscribed inside with it’s rightful owner. Nearly 50 years later on Valentine’s Day, Robert Autenrieth slipped the once lost ring on his bride’s finger.
