My question is how she goes about filling out the paper work to start the transfer ?

The decedent must have an estate open, and an executor/administrator that has qualified with the courts. The paperwork reflects that the gun is being transferred by the executor/adminstrator in that capacity. You need to submit a certified copy of the letter of qualification from the court, as well as a certified copy of the death certificate with the submission of the Form 4. Everything else remains the same, duplicate copies, pictures, fingerprint cards, citizenship certificate.
You will need to fill out the form using the instructions on the reverse, and complete the box showing the decedent's information.
If it is an out of state transfer, same thing to you dealer (no photo, fingerprint cards, etc.), followed by a standard transfer to you.

But what TNKen said sounds correct indeed!

I didn't include a copy of the death certificate or the court appointment and everything went thru OK. But the inclusion of these items wouldn't hurt. Good luck!!
