Lots of irony here, and perhaps some lessons. Famed local juvenile court judge who never had any children of her own, but has a building named after her that has housed probate court operations for the county, now has her estate tied up in probate court.
Lamoreaux, 92, has Alzheimer’s dementia, according to court records. Her family – mostly nieces and nephews, as Lamoreaux has no children – is trying to care for her and preserve her estate. But they’ve fought over how best to do that, and about who should be in charge of Lamoreaux’s money, and they’ve taken the fight to probate court.
