It is true that the first RMD must be in the year the original owner passed away?

My sister passed away suddenly. Our county is the one of the worst counties for probate in the state. It is likely that it will take at least two months to appoint an executor. At this point, I am not even certain where her accounts are held. She did have an IRA somewhere but wasn't old enough for RMDs. For now, I am just trying to get my feet under me, taking care of her pets and arranging a funeral.
