BEACHWOOD - There is lots of love to go around in the Endreson family, and now there's also plenty of cash.

Sigrid Endreson says 17 of 19 surviving siblings, including herself, have been pitching in on a family lottery pool for years. She's been in charge of buying tickets for the family since their mother passed away in 2004.

Endreson says she purchased the winning $20 million Pick-6 ticket at a 7-Eleven in Lacey on June 16, but it took her a while to check it.

Her brother John Endreson was one of a handful of family members who were hit hard by Superstorm Sandy. He says this win comes at the perfect time.

"I was able to redo my house with the help of family and my brothers and ... quite fortunate," he says. "This is the icing on the cake. I depleted my savings, and now things are looking up pretty good."

Sigrid Endreson is also sharing the prize with the three children of a brother who died a few years ago.

They opted for the lump sum and will share just over $10 million after taxes.
