Bell worked as a supply chain analyst for the Boeing Company in Auburn for almost 36 years. The company had just delivered the very last jumbo 747 jet. Bell saw that the Powerball jackpot at that time was $747 million. She took that as a sign to purchase the lottery ticket. Bell regularly plays $20 a week on lottery games.


When Bell was working virtually, the next day, she saw on a news site that the winning ticket was purchased in Auburn. She thought it could be her, so after her virtual meeting, she checked her numbers and discovered that she indeed had a winning ticket. How exciting! She then realized she had THE winning ticket. She broke down and cried as she realized her life was going to change. Bell says she's never won more than $20 in her life.

Bell was already planning to retire in June from Boeing. However, due to her recent life change, she's moved up her retirement date to the end of March. She's staying at Boeing and training replacement employees to take over. What a trooper.
