Greetings, JS, and welcome to Fooldom.

<< I'm also wondering, since she has no interest in managing her own money, what are some ways I could help her without taking away her control? Any reading recommendations?>>

JeanDavid gave you a good response, so I won't add anything to that except to say you need to recognize it is her money, her risk tolerance, and her decision. As much as you may want to convince her otherwise, she's the one who must take the necessary action. Changing the behavior of others when they are averse to doing so is a nearly impossible task, as any parent will confirm. She can read the same materials you did and still continue on as she has in the past. Or maybe not. But that's beyond your control, and thinking otherwise will be an enormous frustration to you.
