A 101-year-old woman was evicted from a house she'd lived in for 58 years.

A 101-year-old woman was evicted from a house she'd lived in for 58 years.

A 101-year-old Michigan woman was kicked out of her home - and her belongings tossed like garbage - because she owed back taxes.

A Wayne County bailiff evicted Texana Hollis after her son ignored notices that she owed property taxes, WXYZ-TV in Detroit reported.

And the bailiff didn't do it nicely: the elderly woman's belongings were tossed into Dumpsters as she stood helplessly outside and in tears, WXYZ-TV reported.

The Wayne County treasurer's office told the TV station it was trying to figure out exactly what happened.

The distraught woman's son, Warren Hollis, said it was all his fault.

He had ignored payment notices for years - and didn't tell his mom they were receiving eviction notices.

"I feel bad, maybe I should have paid closer attention," he said.

Texana Hollis had lived in the house for 58 years.

"This lady needs to be back in her home that she purchased and she sweated for," one neighbor said.

A distraught Texana Hollis said, "I wanna go back in."

She and her son are staying in a rental house across the street.
