If you mom and dad divorced before he died, then you treat her as if she died before him for estate purposes (i.e., she would get nothing). You need to go through probate if he owned more than $65,000 in property or any real estate. You have to jump through a lot of hoops paying creditors, filing IRS taxes, etc. first though. An attorney, like us, can help.
