Bad sister said she may look again, and am chuckling because just was texted by other sister that the locks were being changed right then. Bad sister and Mom live in the same mobile home park. Worst case, we have to drive about 20 hours each way. That would be hard on all of us.
Take her to DMV and get a new ID. They should be able to pull up the last one with her photo on it. Lost ID's are not an issue. Does she have a passport or her birth certificate? You can use your mom's place for a couple of days to get an ID or better yet rent a room. I would expect that you can get the ID in one visit but you might want to call DMV ahead of time.

Take her to the bank for any changes to the bank signatures. Children stealing from parents is far too common. You're not the only one with a bad sister. Unfortunately, Mom would never throw one of her daughters in jail.

The sister takes her cards? Did she not also take her ID? Not a big surprise she can't find the ID when finding it goes counter to her attempt to take over Mom's assets.

If you don't think you can get the ID I'd get on the road and plan two days over and three days back. Frequent stops and some fun sights on the way back. You can bring a lot more of her personal stuff back if you take the car. There are so many little things that bring back memories and make a place her home. Our prayers go with you.

Whole lot better than me! Never made it past 7. Got a good spouse for more than 10, I'd have to say they're a "keeper!" Hope you see your 50th anniversary, some things are worth hanging on to....

Married 21 years to a vary nice Lady, then she got smart.

Engaged to not so nice Lady and then I got smart.

Current wife -- friends for 8 years and now married for 5 years.

I think this one plans to keep me. MAYBE? Time will tell.

Ohh...you all are newlyweds. Ha.
I married the love of my life almost 34 years ago. We met when I was 17, and married when I was 21. He is 9 years older. One of our daughters (age 24) was dating young men her age, never was working out. Is dating (and shacking up with) one who is 10 yrs older. Seems to be working well, although I'm not thrilled with the shacking up part. He is a very nice man and works hard, and doesn't play video games or act like a childish idiot.

Yes it did take me a long time to smarten up. As for the "Shacking Up", in the past I might have agreed with you but after my romantic failures, I really believe it is the best choice. I know the old adage about "buying the cow if you are getting the milk free" but nobody is talented (acting) enough to put on good show 24 /7 /365. Being on your best behavior has time limits. Plus shacking up does not have the social stigma of years past --- she is not going to be known as a loose woman. Keep my finger crossed for her and I am very proud and happy for you. 34 years is quite an accomplishment.
