Neighbor Buys 89-Year-Old Widow’s House After She’s Evicted To Let Her Move Back In

In Hudson, Florida, one neighborhood is showing that neighborliness isn’t entirely dead, even though it doesn’t mean what it once did.

Angie Tyma learned she was evicted from her home in November 2016 after discovering the person she had sold it to had moved to Europe and stopped paying the mortgage. As a result, the property went into foreclosure. 

Tyma had no one to lean on. At the age of 89, she didn’t believe she would be thrown onto the street after her husband died 20 years ago. Being evicted from her home was nothing short of terrifying for her, especially given how long she had lived there. 

“I’ve been through hell and back,” the elderly woman told the outlet. “I’ve lived here for 35 years.”

She continued, “They threw me out.”. It was unbelievable.”

A team from the management company that took over the property came by to forcefully evict her. ABC Action News reported that they threw out much of Tyma’s furniture and possessions without thinking twice.

Tyma called the company’s actions “heartless, really heartless.”.

Tyma was forced to rent a room at a hotel near her home after being evicted.

The neighbors were disturbed by the turn of events and rallied together to find a solution.

At an auction, Danielle Calder, who lived a few houses down from Tyma, bought the house for $167,500 and rented it back to Tyma. Calder did not disclose the rent cost.

According to Calder, 65, “I didn’t need another house.” However, I needed her. 

It was hard for me to imagine her living in a motel room… she’s been here for so long. She is looked after by everyone.”

She splits her time between Massachusetts and Florida.

In December 2016, Tyma was able to move back into her house after three weeks of living at the Days Inn hotel. Her friendly neighbors had also painted the house fresh.

It was one of the best birthday gifts Tyma had ever received to be able to return home.

“Usually, one of my neighbors bakes me a cake every year, but this time, when I stepped out of the car and saw all these people… “I was in shock,” she said. It was a speechless moment for me. I couldn’t even speak.”

Her first priority was to organize all her furniture and things.

Currently, I’m unpacking all the boxes. There was a lot of broken stuff in my house,” she said. “I’m cleaning.”

In addition, Tyma expressed her gratitude to her neighbors, especially Calder, her “very good friend and a good neighbor”.

According to Calder, the neighborhood would not be the same without Tyma.

“Everyone knows Angie,” she told Today. She walks two little dogs. She’s an elderly woman, but she’s pretty feisty and energetic.”

All she wanted to do was help.

It was the right thing to do, she said, adding, “We’re all family.”

In the meantime, viewers were moved by the camaraderie between the neighbors. 

The people who helped her out are wonderful. Thank you for restoring my faith in mankind,” wrote one user.

A commenter wrote, “You don’t find people like that every day, bless her family for helping her. Shame on her landlord for being so ridiculous.”.

This is an amazing story of a community coming together. This woman’s outcome was wonderful. A third user said, “She is very lucky to have such kind, caring, and generous neighbors.”.

In addition, many scorned how an elderly woman could be evicted so easily and how her situation was handled.

In order to protect the elderly, we need new laws. You cannot evict them without a trial, and a judge will decide how long they have lived there. When it has been more than 20 years, a new homeowner cannot evict the elderly person, and the rent cannot be raised, either.”

“Why are you doing this to old people… shame on you,” wrote another sympathetic viewer.
