Mother of Four, Who Quit Working to Care for Children, Wins Powerball
One of the three winning tickets in Wednesday’s Powerball drawing belongs to Marie Holmes, a 26-year-old mother with four kids, one of whom has cerebral palsy. Holmes worked at Walmart and McDonald’s but had quit to take care of her children.
When she was asked if she’s ready to deal with that much money, Holmes said, “I’m ready for it. I’m ready to embrace the change. I’m very grateful for what’s about to happen for my family.”
The other two winning tickets for Wednesday night’s Powerball were sold in Texas and Puerto Rico.
