LANSING, Mich. — A Kent County woman was recovering from surgery Monday when she discovered she was now a millionaire.

Dawn Cooley, 44, bought her lucky ticket at the Speedway gas station located on 3315 South Division Ave. in Grand Rapids.

Cooley wasn’t only unconvinced herself, but her family kept telling her she read the ticket wrong. “I still couldn’t believe it, so I took my ticket back to Speedway to have the clerk scan it,” she says.

After the clerk attendant confirmed in a whisper that Cooley had won a million dollars, she went to the lottery headquarters Tuesday to collect her one-time lump sum payment of $634,517.
