LADERA HEIGHTS, CA — A 102-year-old woman faces eviction from her Ladera Heights home next month so her landlord can move in his daughter, a recent law school graduate.
Friends are rallying around Thelma Smith, a spry widow, who lost most of her family. However, she has few options left as the deadline for her to leave approaches. Her remaining family lives on the East Coast, and she can’t afford an assisted living home, CBS2 reported.
A family friend told CBS2 Smith would need government help, as well as assistance from family and friends to make such a move.
When the landlord was asked by CBS2 if he would kick out a 102-year-old woman, which he can legally do, he responded, “Would you take care of your child?”
