She also has purchased a LTC policy. She is spending $4,500 a year for all this insurance. I cannot think of any reason for her to have life or LTC insurance.
Any reasons to not cancel all this coverage now?

As for LTC, I wouldn't be so quick to jump the gun.
Have you actually priced out how much it would cost to put her in assisted-living?
How much does the LTC pay in benefits? Is the company solvent?
Are you willing to pay all of nursing home care if that is required?
If not, is your wife, willing to see her mother in a Medicaid facility?
