An elderly woman has spoken of her heartache after her husband’s wedding ring was stolen from her home on the day she was laying him to rest.
PSNI Detectives in Lurgan are appealing for information after the break-in at a house in Monaghan Street, Milford on August 17.
A number of other items were stolen including a large amount of cash, a credit card, a cameo brooch, gold rings and pearls.
A men’s ‘Limit’ watch was also taken.
Muriel Diffin said she returned from her husband - Cyril ‘Espie’ Diffin’s - funeral at First Presbyterian Church, Armagh to find her home had been burgled.
She has now appealed for anyone with information about the incident to come forward.
Mrs Diffin said of everything that was taken “the most important thing was my husband’s ring, it was a gold ring with a red stone”.
She said they had been married 52 years.
Police are appealing for anyone who was in the area on August 17 and noticed any suspicious activity to contact detectives in Lurgan on the non-emergency number 101. Or if someone would like pass information without giving their details they can contact the independent charity Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.”
