"Her reaction is nuts. A normal person would have left and later attempted a legal solution, not resisted arrest. So, stop thinking that you're somehow responsible or that you could have done it differently. There's no different way that she would have accepted, other than you giving her your house. NTA."

NTA. OF clearly has some mental disorder. Who the heck shows up unannounced with kids and belongings in tow to "move in", then refuses to leave? No one in their right mind certainly! 🤯 So the fact that OF is crazy definitely discredits any claim she has about what your mom *might* have said to her on her death bed. If your mom truly saw OF as a "surrogate daughter", she would have written her into her will years ago, and definitely when she was originally diagnosed with cancer. (Most people get all their ducks in a row when they find out they could be dying, including finalizing their wills). 👍 The fact that your mom didn't include OF in her will tells you everything you need to know about her intentions. So live well and guilt free, and for heaven's sake, file a restraining order already and get that psycho OF out of your life! 😱
