(NewsCore) – COTTAGE GROVE, Minn. — A Minnesota woman won $15,000 in the lottery a month after she died, with her husband left surprised as he did not know she even played, KARE-TV reported Saturday.
Ginny McCauley, of Cottage Grove, Minn., died of cancer in November, but two friends she played the lottery with for 30 years continued to buy a ticket.
Ideally you should try to win the lotto before you die, but I suppose it’s a nice parting gift to those you’re leaving behind. I know I wouldn’t be upset to leave behind a winning ticket when I finally shuffle off this mortal coil. Just the same I’d rather get it beforehand and try to prove the cliche that money can’t buy you happiness.
Kudos to her lotto partners for sharing the winnings with her widowed husband as they had no legal obligation to do so.
