Hello and thank you for using JA! My goal is to provide you with excellent service and help with your legal problem.

How long has she lived there?

Is there any agreement for her to pay any rent or contribute to the utilities?
.
Have you given her a written notice to leave?

she has been hear a least 2 year she was giving my wife 25 dollar for food no written just verble with wit she dosent help with any thing I have asked her to

Ok, if she has been there that long, then legally she would be considered a tenant and you and wife would be the landlords. Since there is no written agreement, she would be a month to month tenant under an oral lease agreement.
.
In Maine, a landlord can terminate a month to month lease by giving the tenant a 30 day written notice to move. If the tenant doesn't move after the 30 days then you would have to pursue a formal eviction through the courts to get her out.
.
You couldn't just throw her out or she could sue you for an illegal eviction.
