"For 1999 your mom can file married joint.
If nothing changes for her in the year 2000, she would file (head of household depending if she qualifies or single)"

What triggered my thoughts about tax issue was I began to think about whether she would have to pay more or less taxes due to filing "joint" vs. "single" or "head of household".

I'll have to check the tax publication to see the qualification for filing as "head of household".
