my long lost Aunt McKenzie.....glad I finally found her.

Sorry, she's my wife now.   You get the money after I pass away in 50 years or so.

I hope there's a way she can get in contact with the person who let her go before them. She owes that person a good chunk of change, at least 5-10 million.

Powerball winner Gloria C. Mackenzie, 84, leaves the lottery office escorted by her son Scott Mackenzie, right, after claiming a single lump-sum payment of about $370.9 million.




This the house of Gloria C. Mackenzie, 84, of Zephyrhills, who won the $590.5 million Powerball jackpot.


Good for her, hope she puts it to good use.  There are too many stories out there about lottery winners wrecking there lives.

So it looks as though Gloria is just a rude old bag that doesn't like to wait in lines.

http://gma.yahoo.com/woman-let-powerball-winner-ahead-her-no-regrets-130005843--abc-news-topstories.html

Crandell, of Zephyrhills, Fla., was in line to purchase lottery tickets in Publix on May 18 while tending to one of her two daughters when Mackenzie, 84, stepped in front of her.

"My 10-year-old said, 'Mom, There's a lady in front of us.' I noticed that the lady was there. Didn't pay a lot of mind to it," Crandall said.

The lady at the counter stopped Mackenzie to allow Crandell to reclaim her spot in line. Crandell declined the offer and told Mackenzie "go ahead. " It was a move that could have potentially cost the Crandells the $590.5 million Powerball ticket. Mackenzie purchased one Quick Pick ticket and left the store.



Now I wish she didn't win.

Pretty crude. But if it does happen, IRS gets even more share of the pie.

I have never played the game.  But what guarantee is there,  that if the other lady went before Mackenzie, she gets the winning numbers?  Can't you pick your own numbers? Maybe the other lady had her own numbers that she wanted to play.  And even if they both let the computer pick there numbers, just a second or two would change everything. People were buying tickets all over the country, in states where they have powerball.  So if you take a second to dig out some cash or whatever, they have printed out 10-15 tickets in that time from other locations.

The "cutting in line" story is a great example of a non-story.

The girl who would have gone first would most definitely have not gotten the winning numbers.

You guys are both right, unless the lady behind her bought quick picks, and at exactly the same time..she wouldn't have won either. But that's not my issue with this, it's that the old bag obviously wouldn't have won either if she went and waited in line like a normal person would do. It's just kind of crappy to see someone win well over 200 million after taxes when that person doesn't even have the common courtesy to wait in line.

Zephyrhills Powerball winner buys $1.2 million home in gated Jacksonville community
 
By Lisa Buie and Carolyn Edds, Times Staff Writers

Thursday, July 18, 2013 11:29am
 










ZEPHYRHILLS The gold Ford Taurus has disappeared from the dirt driveway. Also gone is the neighbor kid's congratulatory crayon drawing of palm trees, taped to the door of the tiny gray duplex where Gloria MacKenzie lived until she won $590.5 million, the largest single jackpot in American lottery history.

Records show that MacKenzie, 84, traded her former rental unit in for a 6,322-square-foot, five-bedroom home in Glen Kernan Country Club, a gated golf course community in southeast Jacksonville. The price: $1,175,000.

Property records show the deed was transferred to Melinda Ann MacKenzie, trustee, on June 21. Gloria MacKenzie has a daughter by the same name who teaches high school science in Maine. Her son, Scott, who had a standing agreement to split the prize with his mother, also lives in Jacksonville.
 

The listing for the two-story lake-front house describes it as "majestic," with a curved staircase, home theater and wet bar, fireplace, library, 4-1/2 baths, a chef's kitchen and a full-sized laundry room.

The former owners were listed as Dr. Yousif A. Abubakr, a Jacksonville hematologist oncologist. An office manager for Abubakr said he sold the home through a trust and did not deal directly with the buyer.

Troy Davis, who lives next door to MacKenzie's new home, declined to comment.

Back on the rural road in Zephyrhills where MacKenzie used to take walks, neighbors wondered what became of her.

"We were kind of disappointed we didn't see her again," said Paul Bathrick, who lives a couple of doors down from MacKenzie's former one-bedroom apartment. He said MacKenzie's two sons came a few weeks ago to remove her belongings.

Jorge Trapero, a friend of MacKenzie's who lived in the adjacent apartment, was not at the home Wednesday. A Progress Energy worker whose truck was on the property said he had just cut off the electricity to Trapero's unit. MacKenzie's, he said, was cut off a couple of weeks ago.

MacKenzie has remained in the shadows since coming forward June 5 to claim the prize, which she took in a lump sum of $370.9 million that totaled $278 million after taxes.

She referred questions to members of a law firm, who then would not answer questions. She bought the winning ticket on May 18 at a Publix on U.S. 301 in Zephyrhills, where a woman let her cut in line in front of her.

A possible sighting was reported June 9 when an unidentified woman who diners said looked like MacKenize paid $2,600 for the meals of all 180 patrons at BuddyFreddy's off Interstate 4 in Plant City. She gave $50 to each of the five servers.

Most family members also have declined to comment.

News of the home purchase came as a surprise to Ella MacKenzie, her sister-in-law who lives in East Millinocket, Maine, near Bangor. She said she has had little contact with Gloria since she moved to Florida about eight years ago after her husband, Ralph, died.

"That's great," Ella MacKenzie said. "She didn't really have a nice home."

Ella MacKenzie said she also has not seen Melinda MacKenzie, who lives nearby, since her mother struck it rich.

"We used to see her quite a bit," she said. "She walked by the house a lot."
