Atlanta, GA (AP) -- Sheriff's deputies and a moving crew were about
to evict a woman and her daughter from their Atlanta home but
decided not to go through with it after they saw the women.

WSB-TV reports that Fulton County deputies and the movers, who had been hired by a bank, showed up Tuesday at the home on Penelope Road in northwest Atlanta. The home is shared by 103-year-old Vita Lee and her 83-year-old daughter.

Bank officials said Wednesday that an arrangement will be worked
out to let the women stay in the home.

Lee said she knew the deputies were coming to evict her, but
that God wouldn't let them do the wrong thing. Lee said the two
have lived in the home for 53 years.
