CHICAGO (AP) — A Chicago funeral home that handled the funeral for Chicago Cubs great Ernie Banks has filed a claim against his estate for $35,000.

The claim filed Wednesday by the Donnellan Family Funeral Services comes amid a legal challenge by Banks’ widow of a will Banks signed in October that leaves all his assets to caretaker Regina Rice. Last month, a judge ordered Rice to provide a full accounting of Banks’ estate after her attorney said Banks had assets worth just $16,000 when he died in January.

Banks’ widow went to court to prevent what she says was Rice’s effort to cremate Banks’ remains. Donnellan is asking to be paid $35,000, including nearly $4,000 for legal fees it incurred “due to dispute over disposition” of Banks’ remains.
