Purse lost in 1957 found behind school locker 62 years later

Back 1957, an Ohio teen named Patti Rumfola lost her purse. A school custodian found the missing bag behind a locker – 62 years later. Now, the lost artifact serves as an unintentional time capsule, giving Rumfola's five kids a glimpse into her life as a teen.


  1. Good Catholic girl with her Sacred Heart pin. Viva Cristo Rey

  2. Sad how CBS skipped over her Catholicism and devotional necklace and Sacred Heart card.
    She graduated in about 1960...and didn't marry until 1980?...then had 5 children?? That's pretty daunting math.
