Great-Grandmother Says She is Too Old After C$50 Million Lottery Win
An 80 year old great grandmother in Canada has said that she is too old for her C$50 million lottery win.
Lois Olsen didn’t live in a house with indoor plumbing or a telephone until the late 1960s so when she found out that she had won the jackpot she seemed stuck for ideas about what to do with the money. Olsen said that she was speechless and started shaking when she learnt of her windfall but said “I’m too old for this. I would have liked to have won this 20 or 30 years ago.”
She intends to use the money to help her children, grandchildren and great grandchildren (of which she has 3, 9 and 8 respectively) but aside from buying a new car has no plans to make any purchases for herself.
