SD Woman Reunited With Class Ring 40 Years Later
1972 Rapid City Flood

RAPID CITY, SD -

A Rapid City woman who lost her class ring in the flood of 1972 has been reunited with it.

Vesper Wright says she had long written off the ring that she'd gotten in 1968. She says "it was completely gone from my mind."

But Neil Ramlow had discovered the ring in 1972 while working for a mobile home salvage company after the flood. He held onto it for 40 years, hoping at some point to figure out how to find its owner.

Last year, he finally connected with a Rapid City librarian, who matched up the ring's initials with Wright's maiden name.

Getting the ring back was especially meaningful for Wright, who had worked to pay for it herself as her first major purchase.
