Thank you for your question.
If the person who left her the inheritance died before she did, then the inheritance passes is accordance with your mother's estate, either by her will or by the laws of intestate succession if she left no will.
If the person who left her the inheritance died after your mother then that person's will governs what happens to the inheritance.
Happy to discuss further.
I hope this helps. Please leave a positive response so that I am credited for my time.
