Case: In the Estate of Minnie Ola Kremer
Court: Ninth Court of Appeals – Beaumont
In this Will contest from Beaumont, we get one of the rare cases where undue influence was proven in the trial court, and managed to hold up at the Court of Appeals. Pearl Graef probated the 1989 will of her sister, Minnie Ola Kremer. Nearly two years later, Charles Lester Smith, a friend of Minnie’s, filed a motion to set aside the 1989 Will and instead probate a Will allegedly written by Minnie in 2004.
