As your Mother was alive at the time her nephew died, the monies due to her pass in accordance with her Estate.
Therefore, if your Mother did not leave a Will, these monies to pass equally between you and your siblings, on the basis that her Father dies before your Mother.
If your Mother left a Will, the monies will form part of her Will, and be distributed accordingly.
I hope this clarifies the position to you.
If so, I would be grateful if you could rate my answer.
