JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- The retiree from Maine who won a $590.5 million Powerball jackpot in May has bought a 6,322-square-foot, five-bedroom home in a gated golf course community in southeast Jacksonville.

The Tampa Bay Times reports that 84-year-old Gloria MacKenzie has remained in the shadows since coming forward to claim the prize, which she took in a lump sum of $370.9 million that totaled $278 million after taxes. She bought her winning ticket May 18 in Zephyrhills, where she lived in a rental apartment.

Property records show the deed to the $1.175 million Jacksonville home was transferred to Melinda MacKenzie, trustee, on June 21. Gloria MacKenzie has a daughter by the same name. Her son, Scott, who had a standing agreement to split the prize with his mother, also lives in Jacksonville.
