Kelowna retiree Maureen Lee is ‘set for life’ after winning the lottery.

The ticket was purchased at the Cooper Road Save-On-Foods.

At home, when she discovered the win, she couldn’t believe her eyes.

“I got into the car with my husband and we drove to the closest gas station to verify that the win was real. He was so shocked,” Lee said of her husband’s reaction.

After the win sunk in the pair celebrated with a nice bottle of wine.

Lee plans to use the winnings to pay off the mortgage and gift some to her children.
