A Jefferson County, Georgia woman plans to help a displaced family member find a new home with winnings from the Georgia Lottery.
Her name is Joann Jordan of Wrens, and she won a stellar $200,000 top prize playing the instant game EZ Grand.
Jordan, 56, intends to purchase a new home for her sister whose house was severely damaged during a tornado.
Now that’s a family tie that is strong, don’t you think?
She has been living with me, and I want to get her back into her own place, she shared. I’m doing that for her, and she’s happy.
The mother of two adult children scratched the lucky ticket it in the store.
There were other people in the store, she recalled. They came over. I was crying and hollering.
Well, wouldn’t you… I mean, I would.
