Lottery Winner To Retire From Manicure Business

SCHILLER PARK, Ill. (CBS) — A change of lifestyle is ahead for Rose Juarez of west suburban Schiller Park, now that she has won $1 million in the new $2 Powerball drawing.

As WBBM Newsradio’s John Cody reports, Juarez says 40 years of giving manicures is about enough, and now she can do something about it.

“Thank you, Jesus,” she said. “Thank you, thank you.”

She bought the $2 Powerball ticket at J&R Liquor & Food, at 2401 N. Ashland Ave. near Fullerton and Clybourn avenues, and now she plans to head out.

“Italia, Hawaii – this is my dream,” Juarez said.

Juarez’s husband, Felipe, says he will keep driving a Top Hat cab despite his wife’s windfall.

The win has turned Rose Juarez into a big believer.

“I say to every people – play the game, because it’s true,” she said.

She is taking the million in a $750,000 dollar lump sum, and says she plans to keep on buying Lottery tickets.

    now all the white trash and niglets will be hating her

    Her husband will keep his job. He is probably saying to himself. That if he stays home with wife. She could drive him crazy. hehe

  • Terrell Harris

    I think she should defiantly invest the money in a franchise, because the next thing you know she will be back doing nails if she just blows off the money.

  • Casey

    Has her citizenship been verified ?
    Something tells me that money is going straight to Mexico.

    And doing nails is a cash business, meaning she probably has not been paying the proper income tax for those 40 years anyway.
