Great-grandma wins $50M

Lois Olsen

Alberta’s newest multi-millionaire wishes she’d won her big lottery prize a couple of decades back, when she would have had more time left to enjoy it.

Lois Olsen thinks 80 is a bit old for this $50 million business.

“For my family, it’s going to help them out a lot,” she said Wednesday after picking up a cheque that was enormous in every sense of the word.

“For me, I’m too old for this. I would have liked to have won this 20 or 30 years ago.”

Olsen said she plans to spend at least some of her windfall on her kids, grandkids and great-grandkids.
