Sweet relief: New Castle woman wins Cash For Life

A New Castle woman's financial struggles vanished before her eyes this week when she scratched-off a top prize on a Hoosier Lottery Cash For Life ticket.

"This is something that honestly for us is going to be life changing," said Garner who fought back tears as she talked about what the windfall means to her and her family.  "With this I can actually get a home and own it without worrying about how I'm going to pay for it."   

Garner has opened her home to her children and grandchildren on several occasions as her family members struggled through tough times.  Although her husband works hard at his job at ConAgra, Garner said it has not always been easy to meet the needs of their large family.  

"This has been one of the greatest things God could ever do for us, honestly." said Garner. "You always hear and see on TV this happen to everybody else. You spend that money every once in a while - and I don't buy 'em often - but you just don't think it's going to happen to you. I really was thankful to God.  It really will change the rest of our lives."
