Which means I only have to worry about is the RMD for the inherited IRA which is not part of probate. I don't have a December 2017 statement.

Unless you are the beneficiary of this account, you have nothing to do. (I haven't looked back over the thread, but) if you're the executor/administrator, all you have to do is notify the named beneficiary that s/he is the beneficiary of ABC account at XYZ. It is their responsibility to determine what distributions are required and to execute them. Your only responsibility might be to provide a death certificate.
