A: You can sue her but you will have to hire someone to pay her and it will cost money. I suggest you resolve this if possible through your and her family because the problem is most likely someone forgetting that facebook is public and trying to be spiteful without getting the public fallout.

You can ask an attorney to send a "cease and desist" letter to her and facebook. You will have to pay for that.
