Retired Acton couple ‘very quiet’ after winning half a million dollars in lottery

Acton’s Carol-Ann Barber didn’t have much to say after she and husband Malcom Kilburn won $500,000 in Sunday’s LOTTO MAX draw.

Her silence spoke volumes.

When the retired married couple discovered they won their  share of the $1 million MAXMILLION draw, the store clerk thought they were joking.

“I was very quiet,” said Barber, who along with her husband would let a couple of close friends know about their win.

The grandparents have already know what they want to do with their new-found winnings, planning to invest their winnings and use some of the money toward a new apartment with easier accessibility.

Barber and Kilburn usually play the lottery together twice a week.

“We play LOTTO MAX and LOTTO 6/49 – especially when the jackpot is high,” Barber said.

The winning ticket was purchased at Royal Jug City on Queen Street in Acton.
