US woman wins $15K in lottery a month after her deathJanuary 31st, 2011 - 1:59 pm ICT by ANI
Melbourne, Jan 31 (ANI): A widowed US man got one last gift from his wife - 15,000 dollars that she won in the lottery a month after her death.
According to KARE, Ginny McCauley of Cottage Grove, Minnesota, died of cancer in last November, but two friends she played the lottery with for three decades continued to buy a ticket.
At Christmas, they scooped 45,000 dollars and rang their late friend’s husband Paul McCauley to share the winnings with him, reports the Daily Telegraph.
McCauley said he was convinced it was his wife’s way of getting the last word and he knew exactly how the Green Bay Packers fan would have spent the money.
“If she was alive … we’d go to Dallas (for the Super Bowl),” he said. (ANI)
