Four of the 16 Holdingford, Minnesota school employees who won half of a $190 million Powerball jackpot in October have left the school.

Susan Breth says she'll leave her job as part-time cook at the end of the school year. She joins Barbara Nelson, Donna Lange and Alice Kobylinski in retirement.

Kobylinski was a custodian for the district. The rest were cooks.

The group won the lottery after years of chipping in a quarter each to play every payday. Despite their millionaire status, most of the women vowed to stay at their jobs.

While Breth soon will be done with her job as a part-time cook, she says she'll still drive a school bus.

Holdingford Superintendent Roger Carlson says he hasn't been told any of the remaining 12 cooks are planning to quit. He says the millionaire cooks remain wonderful ladies and haven't exhibited any diva behavior.
