My name is Nancy. I have unfortunately been thrown into a crisis for which if someone would have told me a year ago, I would have said 'No Way, that would never happen!'. I've seen other families that get crazy greedy when a loved one dies but never saw it in my family till now.
I don't like asking for help, and usually want to help others but this time I must and all started with my passing of my Mom on January 16, 2022
The amount I need is for:
-Moving back to Arizona (either into preferrably my own house or a rental) or at the very least get a place around here.
-Repair my jeep
My sisters are not dealing with their grief so well, and only try to control in the name of money and stuff. I have not seen this beneficiary deed and especially why my Mom would keep this sort of thing secret is beyond me. She usually told me everything, why only two sisters and not all of us. It's hard to find an attorney in this area that will contest a beneficiary deed, and do it for free.
My Mom never would have wanted what they have done so far:
Three of my five sisters all got together without me included and decided how they would get me out of the house in which would come out of my part of the estate after it was sold. This happened pretty much from almost day one. They came up with 'options' for me, claiming this was all they could afford but that it would get me out sooner as if I was not in charge of myself or was able to do anything for myself. When my Mom passed, I was living here. I am glad I got the last 2 years of my Mom's life with her. I learned alot about my Mom. Mom got some things she wanted to say before she died and even though I didn't want to be here, it was the last resort at the time. Don't believe in coincidences, there always is a reason even though it isn't clear at the time.
My Mom got very ill on the first day of the year. I got very ill the day before she went into the hospital. My sisters claimed they have a beneficiary deed to own the house but she was to divide the profits 5 ways between us 5 sisters. I never questioned it at first because I was very ill, but also because my sister is a Real estate agent, so it seemed the best thing for her to handle the details of the sale of the house. I never even heard of a beneficiary deed, it's not something anyone has talked about, especially my Mom. This never became an issue until they started claiming they own the house, it was willed to them, and who I could have over and when I could have people over. On top of the surveilance cameras she installed, then they made a NO GRANDKIDS RULE on facebook, but I never even saw this since I hadn't gotten online since my Mom passed away. This new rule included my daughter who came by to help me, get things I needed like boxes, milk, food for us and the animals. My sister showed up with the cops and wanting my daughter tresspassed. This was 10 days after my Mom passed. When they couldn't have her tresspassed, they tried to get her arrested. Trying to make the police stay till they could plot ways to do so.
There is no public transportation in this small town. It has been very cold and snowing for the most part of January and February. My sister took my Mom's car, a TOD title but she could have let me use it while I get things packed and moved. This was all seeming like they wanted to isolate me so I would have no choice but to accept their 'options' to get me out right away.
(12 days after my Mom died and I am still unwell) My sister came over and informed me that everyday I am here, it's costing us money. My sister's told me if I didn't choose one of those 'options' then they would:
A: Evict me
B: Call CPS on me and have my granddaughter taken away
C: Call Animal control and have the animals taken away, including my Mom's I am taking care of now.
And I would be walking down the street with NOTHING. Little did I know, they had filed the eviction paperwork as a landlord the previous day, just 11 days after my Mom passed. After this last visit from my sister, I no longer accepted any phone calls or had any conversations with them. I was shocked and hurt by their callous and threatening me.
Got served a couple days later. Court was set on Feb. 14, and it was dismissed. The court is 30 miles away and had to get a ride to attend. The Judge stated it was an inappropriate filing:and was too soon after Mom's passing. She also stated you can't get someone out in 15 days. Before the court date they tried to negotiate that I could stay till April 1st, if I talked to them, and if not, I would be charged for my sister's plane ticket and hotel to come to town to attend the hearing.
Two days after that CPS showed up.
Between them calling police and using other agencies to get me out of here even though I already said I was planning to get out as soon as I could, they have continued to tell me I have to leave. Taping letters to the door saying I must vacate in 10 days in which the letter was dated just two days after court. Seems my sister didn't hear a word the judge said. They seem oblivious to the disgust and shock of people who see what they are doing who have a conscience.
I am having a tough time focusing much less finding an attorney who will contest beneficiary deeds in this area or being able to work or get money to get a different place. So far, any place in this area does not allow pets. My furry family including my Mom's furry family need to stay with us. They are not pets, but members of our family, and in my heart, cannot throw away family for any reason. Wished my family could understand this, as my Mom did. Animal lovers know this.
I would really like to buy a place instead of rent, and that would require much more than renting if I could even find a place that allows pets. I had always planned to get back to Arizona.
My family is not paying for me, nor did my Mom. My monthly income is about $600 monthly average, not enough to do much but pay for food and supplies.
It's hard for me to even fathom that my own sisters would do this to their sister since I would never think of doing it to them. For the first time, I am asking good people like you to help me get a place with my granddaughter and my furry family. If you have questions, I'd be happy to answer them.
Thank you from the bottom of my heart and I am grateful for your constribution to helping me.

Downtrodden and homelessUpdate posted by Nancy Crouch at 12:00 am
Well, my sister who did t want to be in the middle and who wasn't allowed to be seen helping me finally offered help after the default judgement on our unlawful detainer when we were sent to the wrong floor, and missed the hearing. She gave me an old camper. . . . .
Homeless bound...in two weeksUpdate posted by Nancy Crouch at 10:30 pm
Got my jeep out of storage, now just needs a tune up, all new fluids, a freezer plug and a coil...but it did push sttart after all these years. Oh man, I've loved that jeep.I basically have two weeks before I will be homeless. does anyone out there care or. . . . .
This just doesn't work...the hopium is wearing off.Update posted by Nancy Crouch at 03:23 pm
I really had hope this would work, it's not like I am a begger or a squatter. My Mom wanted me here. I can't help but wonder how anyone else gets out of these sort of situations to avoid being homeless because of some greedy people, and right now the. . . . .
Unlawful detainer updateUpdate posted by Nancy Crouch at 03:57 pm
Well, it has been rescheduled due to no serving of the notice or summons to go to court. Surely this has angered them but what can I say. I'm not unlawfully detaining the house and it's only been 2 and a half months since Mom passed away. I'm not trying. . . . .
Losing hopeUpdate posted by Nancy Crouch at 09:08 pm
I'm usually a glass half full type of person, and I've shared this on social media sites except facebook because of family and family friends who might try to sabatage it.I hold out hope someone will see this and be able to help and many more sharing and caring can. . . . .
Unlawful detainerUpdate posted by Nancy Crouch at 05:51 pm
On March 7th, my sister filed an unlawful detainerbarely a month and a half after my Mom passed. So my court date is March 28th, and I would love to be gone long before that. My hope is that some people will see this and help if they can or. . . . .
So far...Update posted by Nancy Crouch at 02:45 pm
I can't share this on facebook....family or friends of family would surely see it and mess this up for me to be able to get help and get out of here. I tried sharing on Gab but they blocked crowdfunding links. I am trying my best to get help to. . . . .
