Can a parent who inherited an IRA from their deceased spouse,
then leave it to her children


and it stays , tax sheltered


until they retire


and withdraw?


See IRS publication 590 and the supplement. The money in a traditional IRA is not taxed until it comes out. If the original owner had a payment plan in place, it continues with the beneficiary. If not then you have 2 choices, begin taking RMDs or lump sum payments within 5 years.
