Hi
Thank you for your question.
My name is XXXXX XXXXX I will do my best to help you
If there are any assets that are held in her sole name then these will have to be used to pay her funeral expenses and then her debts
However if all her accounts and assets were in joint names with you then they pass to you automatically and you will NOT have to pay the debt from them
I hope that this is of assistance - please ask if you need further details
