A 90-year-old has found her late husband’s wedding ring under an apple tree—35 years after he lost it in their garden.
Ann Kendrick says Peter, who passed away 22 years ago, lost his band while working in their back garden in Looe, Cornwall in 1987.
The mother-of-seven discovered the ring on Saturday, 23 April when she was clearing around the base of an apple tree.
She said she was “very excited” to find the ring and added that her husband would have been “as surprised as her.”
“It didn’t look at all like a wedding ring,” Ann told the BBC, “it looked like a dirty piece of bent metal. I looked at it and thought ‘no, it couldn’t be’. I was really quite excited. When I was telling a friend about it I got a bit choked up.”
Ann’s 57-year-old son Bob Kendrick runs a restaurant near his home in Dartmouth, Devon.

He said, “Mum was very emotional and over the moon. It wasn’t the first thing that went missing—he used to lose all sorts of things.”
Mrs Kendrick said she will get the ring repaired and she’ll wear it as a necklace in memory of her late husband—a sweet tribute indeed.
