84-year-old Gloria C. Mackenzie won the largest amount of money ever to be given for the lottery, and doesn’t have much to say about it. And if winning $590 million didn’t do much to loosen her lips, don’t think that’s just her being camera shy: her neighbors don’t have much to say about her either: she keeps mostly to herself. Sure, she’s affable enough, nice, polite, but not many details could be gleaned about the somewhat reclusive woman.

The woman lives in a tin-roof house in Zephyrhills, amidst trailer parks and with an old television antenna on her house.

“We are grateful with this blessing of winning the Florida Lottery Powerball jackpot,” a statement blandly said, insinuating, strangely enough, that God’s blessing system works through gambling. “We hope that everyone would give us the opportunity to maintain our privacy for our family’s benefit.” So in other words: leave me alone with my money.

She spent about two hours signing the necessary paperwork, and then went home, accompanied with  her son, without much further ado. No gab about how she will spend her money, if she will spend her money at all, if she will get a new house.

One neighbor, at least, joked, “I hope she gets a better place to live.”
