OLDHAM, England, March 19 (UPI) -- A British woman whose daughters tried to have her evicted in the 1990s cut her offspring out of her will, leaving her entire $30,000 to a local hospice.
Megan Swanston, who died in December at the age of 85, became embroiled in a family conflict when her three daughters attempted to have her evicted from her Oldham, England, home in 1994, The Daily Mail reported Thursday.
The house had been bequeathed to Swanston's daughters by their paternal grandfather when he died in 1973 but Swanston claimed her children had promised to let her live out her days in the home.
After a two-year legal battle, the matter was settled out of court with the house sold to a property company with the stipulation that Swanston be allowed to remain the sitting tenant the newspaper said.
However, Swanston and her daughters never mended their relationship and it was revealed after her Dec. 4 death that she had cut her daughters out of her will, The Daily Mail said. The document stated that she didn't want any of her money going to the trio because of the way they had treated her.
Swanston's money instead went to Dr. Kershaw's Hospice in Oldham.
