Life Estate

In 2000 my mother-in-law filed a quit claim deed conveying her property to her son (my husband)reserving herself a life estate measured by her life. Though I was not mentioned on that quit claim deed, I had to sign her mortgage. My husband then filed a quit claim deed naming he and I as grantors conveying the property to he and I as joint tenants. He passed away after a long illness. There is nothing else filed with the county recorder other than the original deed naming her as owner when she purchased the property, the mortgage, and these 2 quit claim deeds that I mentioned above. Legally where do I stand as owner of the property and am I responsible for the remaining mortage?
