This depends on his ownership situation. If your father was on title to the property in a way that gave survivorship rights and he is now the sole owner, he can follow the eviction process. If he was on title to the property in such a way that he now co-owns the property together with your mother's heirs or if he was not on title, then estate considerations will have to be addressed. Meet with an attorney the area of the property who is familiar with evictions and probate.

Has he directly told her he wants her out? What prevents the family members from mowing, hanging out or doing other things regardless what she says? She does not have any right to control the property.
