Joan Blass was 91 with severe dementia and terminal cancer.
After her death in March 2016, we found that a much younger man, age 68, had secretly married her five months previously. She never knew that she was married (see “Stories” section for full story). These events have had a devastating effect on our family both emotionally and financially. We were shocked by how few checks there were to stop this marriage taking place. We believe that there needs to be better protection against such predatory marriage to prevent this happening to anyone else.
