Well, you have a couple of options:

1. Lower your expectations of his family. If you invite them to something, they may or may not show up and if they do, great, if not, great. This will keep you from going crazy.

2. Tell his aunt that you expect her to be on her best behavior. She’s gone an awful long time without anyone telling her that she’s being an ass. Calmly call her out on her inappropriate behavior every single time and don’t be shy about it. Get a clicker if you have to.

3. Ignore her. You already know she’s a jerk. Don’t listen to her.

I’d have to say go with option 2….let her come, let it slide but make  a polite comment making it obvious that you have not forgotten her previous antics and that ul not put up with any more. And yes, lower your expectations of his family. It saves disappointment.

Good luck!
