More details to this question:
My husband broke in to there house he is on jail. The cops said there was no involvement from anyone else but they won't stop I was diagnosed with cancer and she is putting that on her grass along with nasty things. When I heard what husband did I got a stay way order on him. So he couldn't come back here. I don't know what to do people stop all the time to read these signs and I am not string enough to deal with this.

Call the police.  It probably violates some ordinance.

Put a sign on YOUR lawn that says: "I am a mom with cancer, and I live in this house with my 5 children, and no husband to support us. And now I have a neighbor who harasses me with nasty lawn signs. Please pray for my neighbor. She needs it more than I do." 

Your town or village may have local laws that prohibit lawn signs. Find out, and file a complaint against your neighbor. Depending on what your neighbor says on her signs, it could be slander, and you might have a law suit. The statute of limitations to file an action for slander is one year.
