Does the will have a provision that states who will receive your aunt's assets if your mother predeceased her? If not, I believe the rules of inheritance found in the New York Statute will govern. https://www.nysenate.gov/legislation/laws/EPT/4-1.1. Your sister needs to go to the Probate Court and/or consult an estate attorney.
