I really feel for you, because I've been in that position so many times myself, which is why I am now a VERY private person. If this person is bad mouthing you in that way, chances are she's doing it to others. My suggestion for when you move, is to try to keep as low a profile as possibly, when you first get there, I'm not suggesting you be snobby, just cordial, but distant, til you get to know everyone. Unless you already have, I wouldn't tell anyone where you're going, in case "someone"decides to call and "warn" the new place about you, with their lies, and as far fetched as this may seem, yes, it could happen. This sounds like a possibly very disturbed person to me, who has low self esteem, and gets their pleasure from hurting others. The reason I know all of this, is because I knew someone for 30 years, who was my supposedly "best friend", and I began very slowly figuring out the lies she was telling about me, and others. After a lot of research, I discovered this person was a true psychopath in every sense of the word. I couldn't begin to tell you the lies this woman told, the marriages she destroyed, and she always appeared to be the last person anyone would suspect of these things. It's quite possible, she's making up lies about others as well. It would most likely do no good to confront her or say anything. She would just deny it. All I can suggest is to just try to stay away from her as much as you can, til you can leave. Is there no other person there you trust and can confide in? I would love to know, if this creature, is a psychopath or not, it's very easy to find out, you just google the symptoms or ask me. It won't change anything, but will give you some insight into how manipulative they are, so you can avoid them in the future. My heart goes out to you, because I too have shared your pain. Good luck and God Bless.
