Smith said most of her family is gone, the television station reported. Those who remain are on the East Coast. She is considering moving in with friends or into assisted living, which she said would be hard to afford while living on her fixed income.

KCBS spoke to the landlord, whose name was not released, and asked "We know legally you can make her leave, but 102? Would you kick out a 102-year-old woman?"

The landlord countered, “Would you take care of your child?”
