“Thanks for helping me to keep my home. I sure couldn't have done it without you. Now why don't you let Widow Rooney give you a great big kiss.”— Widow Rooney thanking the Chosen One for helping pay her debts
The widow is in the small shack with the brahmin pen just southwest of the sheriff's office. If you go talk to her about her plight you can either kick her out like the sheriff told you or you can pay the $120 of back rent she owes. If you pay the back rent you receive 1500 XP as your reward, and you gain 25 karma. However, if she is evict, $100 is also given, but at the cost of 25 karma.
