You might want to check to see if all her senior discount on her taxes would be affected if she transferred it to your wife and her sister, retaining a life estate. In Florida, my mother conveyed her home to me retaining a life estate, and her "homestead" exemption remained until her death. Upon her death, all I had to do was file her Death Certificate in the recorder's office and the property was mine, not going through Probate.
