Hixson woman wins $2 million lotto prize

by Adam Crisp

A Hixson woman did a triple take upon scratching off a winning $2 million instant game this week.

Frances Sharp claimed her winnings today at the Tennessee Lottery Headquarters in Nasvhille, according to spokeswoman Kym Gerlock.

This was the first jackpot winner for the “$2 Million Bonaza,” a high-jackpot scrath-off ticket game recently unveiled by the lottery.

“At first I thought I had won $2,000, then I thought it was $200,000,” said Sharp, 69.

Sharp purchased her ticket at a Hixson gas station near where she lives.

We wonder why we can't have such luck at a much younger age. God knows when we are mature enough to handle it I suppose. Travel , see the world . You can't take it with you and no one can ever take your memories away.Good luck to you and may you live to be 109.
