The winner of the $759 million Powerball jackpot has come forward – Mavis Wanczyk from Chicopee, Mass.
Mavis, realized she was the winner while at her job, when a coworker told her to check her numbers. Upon realizing that she had the winning ticket, the coworker instructed her to sign it immediately and then escorted her home.
It doesn’t look like Mavis will return to her job, either. She says she is has let her employer know she will not be returning, her new job? Relaxing. Good for you Mavis!
Mavis is 59 years old and has two grown children. She bought her ticket at 2:30 p.m. on the day of the drawing.
“I had a pipe dream and my pipe dream came true,” she told reporters.
