The spouse and dependent children of a decedent, or any of them, may continue to occupy the principal place of abode of the decedent until one year after the death of the decedent or, if the estate therein is an estate of leasehold or an estate for the lifetime of another, until one year after the death of the decedent or the earlier termination of the estate.

(3) The occupants shall pay taxes and improvement liens on the abode as payment thereof becomes due.

(4) The abode is exempt from execution to the extent that it was exempt when the decedent was living. [1969 c.591 §103]
