Wanda and Xavier were married out of community of property with the accrual system. Wanda died intestate and left her husband, Xavier, as well as the following surviving relatives:

 Her son, Ben. Ben was born out of wedlock from a relationship she had before she got married.

 Her daughter, Francis, born from her first marriage to Yoda. Francis refused to inherit from her mother.

 Francis’ son Gerald.  Her granddaughter, Dina, the daughter of her predeceased daughter Celeste, who was born from her marriage to Xavier.

 Her son, Evert, born from her marriage to Xavier.

Her mother, Mary. Wanda’s estate is worth R500 000 and she is entitled to R100 000 accrual from Xavier’s estate.
