98-Year-Old’s Birthday Surprise: Eviction Notice From Her Son


A suprising story this week from AOL Real Estate:

“On her 98th birthday, Mary Kantorowski got a big surprise from her eldest son Peter. Except it wasn’t a present — it was an eviction notice.

According to 71-year-old Peter Kantorowski, who now owns Mary’s home, his mother would be better off living in a nursing home. He explained to the Connecticut Post that he is worried about her safety and security, and is simply looking out for his mother’s best interests.

“I don’t like the way she’s living over there,” he said to WTNH-TV. “I’m not throwing her out on the street. At her age, at 98, I’m sure that she should be with people of her peers.”

Is he doing the right thing?  You decide.  Read the entire story at AOL:



About UWF Center on Aging

The Center on Aging at the University of West Florida was established in the Fall of 2010 when the School of Psychological and Behavioral Sciences faculty along with assistance from Sponsored Research submitted a grant to the State University System Board of Governors in support of aging initiatives for Northwest Florida. Its mission is to improve the quality of life of aging adults through the application of science to address challenges associated with aging and to promote healthy aging, with an emphasis on prevention. This will be accomplished through inter-disciplinary and inter-professional efforts of basic and applied research, consultation, and partnerships with community agencies. Education and training, direct services to the aging population, and public awareness and understanding of the contributions and needs of elders will be primary objectives.
