Couple locates lost engagement ring


Stevens figures the ring dropped in the driveway and her brother unwittingly shoveled it onto the snowbank. She’s grateful to her brother, her fiance and everyone who helped her look, as well as those who invested in prayers on her behalf to St. Anthony of Padua, the patron saint of lost things.

”Lots of people were wishing me luck and a few offered prayers to St. Anthony,” Stevens said. “I said quite a few myself. I kept talking to him every day. I guess he was listening. I’m very grateful.”

Stevens said she isn’t going to tempt fate again. She’ll refrain from taking her ring off every night when she gets into bed and placing it on the key ring.

”No, I’ve learned my lesson,” she said. “The ring is staying on my finger.”
