Ever since her daughter died 17 years ago, followed by her husband seven months later, Mary Wollens has had a difficult time sleeping.

But she says she knows that wasn't the case the night of Thursday Sept. 28, when she had a dream where she saw a Lotto 6/49 ticket and this "big cheque."

"When I woke up I thought, `I've got to go and get another ticket,'" said Wollens yesterday on a bench on the porch of her Etobicoke home, as she recalled the remarkable chain of events that has changed her life.

Spurred on by the dream of that big cheque and what it suggested, the following morning Wollens, 85, said she went back to the Royal York Smoke shop on Royal York Rd. — where she had already purchased three tickets the day before — and bought another one, using the same numbers, 1, 10, 18, 24, 31 and 46, that were on one of her quick picks.

A day later, on the night of Sept. 30, it would net her $16 million — two-thirds of the $24 million jackpot

The extra ticket that she had bought boosted her winnings by $4 million.

Another winner, in B.C., gets the remaining $8 million.

"I've never been given very much in my whole life that I can remember and all of a sudden I got this huge amount of money," said Wollens, her eyes glistening with the memory of a life lived that she described as hard and modest.

"I just felt like I was floating," said Wollens, mother to one son and one grandchild.

The only treat she's given herself so far is an appointment with her regular hairdresser in the plaza down the road.

She's going to get her hair dyed on Tuesday, although she hasn't quite decided on the colour yet.

She's also planning to hit the slot machines in Las Vegas, something that's been cleared by her son.

But don't you worry about how she's going to handle this sudden windfall.

"It's already done," she said mysteriously, a big grin forming across her face. "It's in process."

She won't tell you what she did, only that it's been taken care of. Nor will she tell you where she's going to move.

"I was warned that there were people who were going to come and take pictures and know the whole works," she added.

What she will talk about at length is a life of hardship that began in rural Alberta and moved to rural Saskatchewan where she lived on a farm with Ukrainian parents and began to work as a house cleaner at age 14.

It was a life that didn't get any easier after she moved to Toronto with her husband at the end of World War II even though he found work building the subway and working on repairing machines.

And it certainly didn't get easier when her daughter was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer at age 61, even as her husband remained ill and bedridden at home.

"Oh God, what I went through," Wollens said.

"When my daughter died, I did nothing but cry. I couldn't help it. She was such a wonderful person."

Wollens said she's not much of a lottery ticket buyer. To her it's just an occasional, harmless pastime, better than going "to the bingo or something like that where you don't win."

Besides, she said, it's an excuse to chat with the variety store owner and his wonderful wife, one of the "most beautiful" people she knows.
