A 103-year-old woman and her 83-year-old daughter got a last-minute eviction reprieve when sheriff’s deputies and movers decided they couldn’t uproot the women from their longtime Atlanta home.

Fulton County Sheriff’s deputies and a moving company hired by the bank showed up at Vita Lee’s Penelope Road home on Tuesday, according to a report on WSBTV.com. Deutsche Bank apparently holds the mortgage that is being serviced locally by Chase, the station reported. The planned eviction was reportedly the latest move in a legal battle that dates back years.

But when the men saw the frail woman, they opted to leave instead of carry through with the forced move, WSBTV.com reported.

The reprieve comes just three weeks shy of Lee’s 104th-birthday. Lee said she just wants to live out her last days in the place she has called home for more than half a century. “I love it. It’s a mansion,” she said about the modest house.
