DeKalb County woman wins $250K in Georgia Lottery

Posted: Updated:

A Decatur woman won $250,000 in the Georgia Lottery.

Donna Cooley played the instant game Atlanta Falcons In The House and won the top prize.

Shell Food Mart on College Ave. in Decatur sold the winning ticket. She scratched it in the store.

"I said, 'I can't believe this,'" Cooley said. "I put my glasses on, looking again, and said, 'Oh my goodness!'"

The couple is pending retirement, so they anticipate building a new house. They also intend to treat their children to a vacation.
