Assuming the will is valid in Florida, it should pass to daughter. But she's probably going to need to bring a probate and get a judge to sign off on it.

NC law applies to home in NC. Who are the friends who are giving the parcel to the land in Florida? If the daughter in Tenn dies with non homestead property in Florida and she has no will, then her property goes to her heirs under Florida law. If the daughter owns the property not sure why there is a question about why the mom would even have an interest in it. Perhaps you want to clarify your question.
