My grandfather was also kicked out of his wife's house after her death by her heirs. .
That reminds me of my poor aunt. Auntie is one of the most caring women you will ever meet. She married LowLife (LL) for some reason that none of us can understand. He verbally abused her and in general made her life difficult. She is in another state so I just know what family gossip says about him.
She did leave him about 3 years ago and moved in with my mom in another state. She stayed with mom for about 5-6 months until LL contacted her to let her know he was dying and that it was her duty to come back home and take care of him. Auntie did just that.
She stayed with him until last summer when he passed away. She did not even leave for a couple of days to come to any of her brotherís funerals. We lost 3 of my uncles and my granddad in a 2 year period. My mom was adopted by her older brother (my grandpa) and Auntie was nearly adopted by him also. Grandpa was very much like a father to her so this was a HUGE deal to everyone even her. But LL made it clear that if she left she didnít need to bother coming back.
When LL passed on, Auntie found out that while she had been living with my mom, LL changed his will giving everything to his kids and signed their house over to one of them. She had 3 days to move out of the house and find somewhere else to live. The kids took everything out of the house that she could not prove was hers including the beds, all the light bulbs, the carpets, EVERYTHING not nailed down and even some stuff that was nailed down!
She contested the will and the signing over of the house, she did not sign anything giving up her rights in the house, but they claim that he didnít know where she was and published a notice in all the local papers. Until the court case is heard, she is permitted to stay in the house. She has to be careful about even going out. They have made it clear that if they drive by and see her away from the house, they will file for abandonment of the house and try to take it before the court date which is still almost 2 years away due to all the delays they keep filing.
