FREMONT — A Newark woman is $1 million richer after claiming the top prize in the California Lottery’s $1,000,000 Fortune Scratchers game, lottery officials said Monday.

Carolyn Rodriguez, a retired catering employee, bought her winning ticket on Friday at Kwik & Convenient Food Liquor & Wine, 3157 Walnut Ave. in Fremont, according to a California Lottery spokesman Alex Traverso.

“I’m still overwhelmed,” Rodriguez said after claiming her prize. “I love cats and plan to adopt as many as possible.”
