You need to ask you friend if her mom has credit life insurance(it might be on the purchase documents for the home) which should provide money to pay off her home. I don't think homeowners insurance covers her burial costs but look at the policy.
If you need an attorney you can e-mail me your phone number and I will call you.
Sorry to hear about your friend's mom and it makes me happy to know that she has a good friend like you helping her through this difficult time. I would also suggest calling Social Security at their toll-free number of (800) 772-1213 to see if she's entitled to death benefits either on her SS number or her husband if she was once married. Mr. Roemer has a good idea to see if her mom had credit life insurance which some people purchase when they buy a car or obtain a mortgage on the house. This type of insurance protects the bank and I'm sure Mr. Roemer would be happy to review whatever policies or information you can find.
