Lake Park Couple Wins Third Big Jackpot on Friday the 13th

Posted: Updated:
Some people think Friday the 13th is an unlucky day. Sherry Klatt-Villiard, who may be one of Lake Park's luckiest residents, is not one of those people.

On Friday, June 13, Klatt-Villiard went to Casey's General Store in Lake Park, Minnesota, to purchase brown sugar. The store didn't have any brown sugar, but she brought home something much sweeter: a $100,000 winning Crossword Extra ticket.

Klatt-Villiard claimed the $100,000 prize at the Lottery's office in Roseville Thursday morning. This was the third time she's been lucky enough to visit the Lottery's headquarters to claim a prize. Her first visit was in 2003 to claim a Ford Ranger XLT, which she won by entering a Northstar Cash® second-chance contest.

"I just traded it in last year," she said.

The second visit was in 2012 when she and her husband, Gary Villiard, claimed a $1,074,739 Gopher 5® jackpot.

"I was just thinking, 'I'm due for a lottery win,'" said Klatt-Villiard.

When asked if they'll keep playing the lottery... "I'm going for number four," she said with a big smile. The lucky couple retired from farming last year.
