Caroline Lamons-Trowbridge of Fulton this month won $40,000 by picking numbers in the June 5 Missouri Lottery Powerball game.
Her husband, Fred Trowbridge, says his wife was "reclaiming her title as the luckiest person in the family."
It wasn't Lamons-Trowbridge's first win playing Missouri Lottery games. Ten years earlier in July of 2003, she collected two other Missouri Lottery prizes. They were a $50,000 taxes-paid prize on a game called Show Me 5 Paydown that has since been replaced by Show Me Cash, and also a $3,000 Pick 4 prize.
Lamons-Trowbridge bought her latest winning Quick Pick Powerball ticket at C&R Supermarket, 640 Commons Drive in Fulton.
Her winning numbers were: 4, 26, 33, 36, 55, and the Powerball was 32. She matched all four white-ball numbers and the Powerball, which earns a $10,000 prize. But when she bought the ticket she paid an additional $1 to add the Power Play option, which bumped up the value of the winning number to $40,000.
