So I am thinking the final assest allocation should be close to 60% bond (index) fund, 25% stock (index) fund and 15% REIT fund.

The only thing you might want to keep in mind with interest rates so low right now is that bond prices will drop if/when interest rates rise - it would be terrible if you sold most of her stock and bought bonds, then stocks went up and bonds tanked. A strategy you might want to consider is to change the allocation over several years.
