  • Lenora Fawcett vs. Stephen and Kimberly Young

    PA - Bruce Gregory, J - Bob Wortham

    A Groves woman claims her granddaughter sold her home without her knowledge and only gave her $6,000 from the $148,000 transaction.

    Lenora Fawcett filed a lawsuit in Jefferson County District Court against Stephen and Kimberly Young.

    Fawcett claims she built a house on property belonging to her daughter and son-in-law, Deborah and Donald Avery, in 1999.

    According to the complaint, Fawcett paid for the house with cash proceeds from a stock sale and moved into the new home on Memorial Day 2000.

    A year later, Donald Avery died and left his entire estate to his wife, the suit states.

    In turn, Deborah Avery deeded the property to Fawcett's granddaughter, Kimberly Young, and her husband, Stephen Young.

    Although Avery deeded the property to the Youngs, Fawcett says she continued to live in the home with no problems until April 2009 when she fell and became hospitalized.
