The house was foreclosed on and Tyma was evicted after the person she sold the house to years ago, who lives in Europe, stopped paying the mortgage.

Tyma, whose husband died almost 20 years ago, got a warning but didn’t really think she would be kicked out. “They kicked me out. I couldn’t believe it,” she said today.

When her neighbors saw Tyma’s belongings being removed from the house, they wanted to help. And then a neighbor, Danielle Calder, who lives a few doors down, bought the house.

Calder contacted the company that bought the house at auction. She bought the house for $167,500 and is now Tyma’s landlady.

After spending three weeks at a Days Inn hotel, Tyma moved back into her home at 89th Birthday.

“Honestly, I didn’t need another house. But I needed her. I couldn’t imagine her living in a motel room…she’s been here so long. Everyone’s looking out for her,” Danielle Calder said today.

Her homecoming was the best birthday present Tyma could get. “Usually one of my neighbors bakes me a cake every year, but this time when I got out of the car and saw all these people and the media… I was shocked. I was speechless. I couldn’t even speak,” Tyma said.

Calder says everyone knows Tyma and she’s “the fabric of the neighborhood.” So she just wanted to help. “It was the right thing. We are a family – the whole neighborhood.”

These neighbors really know how to take care of each other.
