Fairfield Cty, Conn. (WTNH) - A 98-year-old woman has been given an eviction notice from the home she has lived in for decades. The notice came from one of her sons.
"I didn't think he would do it," said Mary Kantorowski said. Kantorowski got the eviction notice from her eldest son Peter, who she hasn't seen in months, on her birthday.

News 8 was invited into the Fairfield County home where Mary made a life with her late husband John. Together they raised two sons, and now have two great grandchildren.
Her son Jack is appalled by his older brother's actions.
"I just don't understand him at all, what's happening with him, there are no other words to call him, he's just a scumbag," said Jack.
Jack said he lives nearby and checks on his mother almost everyday. There are also neighbors, friends and a visiting nurse from Bridgeport Hospital.
The courts are now involved, an evaluation was done, and Mary was deemed competent. The judge assigned Attorney Richard Bortolot as a voluntary conservator.
"I've been practicing a long time, and I've seen a lot of nasty things and this is, you know, he's really made the top ten list," said Bortolot.
Officials documents prove that Mary still pays all of her bills with her Social Security money, but the house is under her son Peter's name. He had his parent's sign it over to him years ago. News 8 found Peter at his home in Trumbull.
"I don't like the way she's living over there," said Peter.
Peter hasn't actually seen his mother in eight months, but said she has fallen a few times, and he's worried about her safety and security.
With claims that Peter is worried about the security of his mother, some would wonder why he hasn't paid her a visit in eight months.
"Well, I can't get in to the house, I don't have the key," said Peter.
He said his mother belongs in a nursing home.
"At her age, at 98, I'm sure that she should be with people of her peers, she should have her meals on time," said Peter.
He has not made an attempt to find a nursing home for his mother, but he did say she could live with him.
"I'm not throwing her on the street," said Peter.
It is a family feud that will be taken to court on March 2nd.
"My family's all here, my family's all here," said Mary. "Well I'm all settled here, so you know I've got my friends."
