As far as I know executrixes do not make decisions about doling out estates - they follow the directions in a Last Will. Based on your description, it might well be better to have your SIL burn through the funds - at that point she will get to face the world on her own.

But with regards to the idea of doling out the funds - #1 Talk with some one who knows inheritance law of the jurisdiction where the estate will be. #2 If as executrix the Countess has the authority to decide how to distribute the estate, you might purchase a lifetime annuity. Generally I am totally opposed to annuities, but maybe it makes sense.
