Well, how long of a post do you want me to generate?

Yes, I suggested it.

I don't mean that rhetorically. She has some problem. Is she incredibly lonely? Does she have no memory? Is her only sense of self worth from feeding people?
She is a widow, her kids live several states away, and about four months ago the house she was living in burned to the ground and she lost nearly everything. Which is how she wound up where she currently is. Even though she was physically unhurt I suspect that mentally she is not doing as well as she tries to make people think she is, which would account for some of the behavior as well as some of her bouts of drinking.

Haven't seen much of her lately - she does have a long-term boyfriend so maybe they're spending a lot of time together.
