‘It just blows my mind’: Viral Facebook post helps widow reunite with beloved wedding band

Michelle Cronch wiped tears from her eyes as she sat at a table at McDonald’s in Steger, Ill., tightly gripping a small plastic bag to her heart.

Inside the bag was a treasured possession, her white gold wedding band.

“I thought I’d never see it again,” she said through the tears recently.

The bagger and utility clerk at Strack and Van Til in Schererville, who lives in Whiting, lost her wedding band and engagement ring while working her New Year’s Day shift at the grocer. The loss was especially hard to bear for the recent widow. Cronch’s husband of 34 years, Donald, died in November after an unexpected illness.
