I Won $1 Million—twice!
With that windfall, she and her husband, Bill, 62, a retired painting contractor, bought a Caddy, paid off the mortgage and helped out their two grown kids. That still left plenty to spend. For Donna, that meant more lottery tickets. Make that winning lottery tickets: After racking up $1,000-plus more in smaller prizes, she won $1 million again on June 9. "Our jaws dropped," says Julianne Wentz, clerk at Bethlehem's Lump's Deli, who sold the second ticket. "It was unbelievable," says Goeppert. "I just couldn't believe I'd won again."

The couple may use their new wealth to trade their row house for a condo and plan to play—he on the golf course, she in Atlantic City. So, how does it feel to bank all that loot? Says Donna, fast becoming an expert: "You glow."
