But she would have to pay gift tax on the remaining $16K, right?

Right. That's the per person limit. She could give her son & wife and/or grandchildren $14K each. In essence she can give everyone she wants $14K without incurring a gift tax but any amount over that to any individual I believe would incur the gift tax.
