If she named you in her will, you could probably take over the account and the police wouldn't come after you for theft(not that they would in any case). Blizzard, however, owns all accounts and characters on every world of warcraft server. They license out the rights to use the accounts and characters. I strongly suspect that legally, because she didn't own the account, she cannot bequeath it to you.

Being in you're will will have no effect on blizz giving you the account.However, if you call tech suport or customer service and give them your story, as a next of kin or executor of the estate they might consider giving the account to you.Best to just call customer support and tell them only that she has passed and you'd like to take over the account under your name. I'm sure they'd help you out.
