An Elkhart, Ind., mother of three who lost her job when the RV industry collapsed finally has something to celebrate — a $50,000 check from the Hoosier Lottery.
Tricia Rich claimed her prize in Indianapolis on Tuesday (June 2) and already has some pragmatic plans for the money, according to INDYchannel.com.
“I’m going to pay off my house,” she said. “I’ve been making payments for 14 years, and I’ve been trying to pay it off early, but I got laid off.”
Rich worked making shower doors for RVs until a year ago.
She bought her winning Lucky 5 ticket at a gas station in Elkhart.
