Not exactly.  But I disagree that you just have to “deal” with it.  You absolutely do NOT have to deal with it.  Just because someone is family doesn’t mean you have to like them, be around them, OR help them out when they want it.  Your DH is wrong.

@souza_2005:  At some point you have to throw your hands up and realize she obviously isn’t interested in hashing things out with you.  If it is making you unhappy or causing you some kind of unrest to be around her, you shouldn’t have to put yourself in that situation.  Don’t invite her to your house, and if you are expected to go meet them somewhere… send DH and call out sick. 🙂
