For Susan Poole, taking care of others at the sacrifice of herself has been a way of life for many years. But after years of caring for sick friends and family, this Boise-transplant had her heart of gold rewarded when she claimed the top prize of $50,000 on the Idaho Lottery’s Scratch Game 24 Karat Gold. Yes, the prize and the game name seem fitting.
After many tears of joy, Susan asked, “Is it real?” when she was handed both her souvenir check and her winner’s check.
And true to her spirit, when asked about her plans for her winnings, she offered she was going to slightly improve her living situation but will definitely use the windfall to help care for others.
Susan’s winning ticket was sold at the Jacksons store located on the corner of Ustick and Maple Grove.
