Is she listed as a beneficiary?
DearCustomer- An estate is generally held open for at least 6 months in order to allow creditors time to file claims so in this case it would appear that you are still within that time period. My suggestion is always that if you are not satisfied with the actions of the executor or suspect foul play that you file a motion with the court for either a removal of the executor or for the executor to provide the information you are requesting. You can also go to the probate court and obtain a copy of the entire file of the estate to see what has transpired with respect to the listing of assets and liabilities and any other filings that there may be.
If there is no activity then you may want to consider filing an action to remove the executor for neglect of fiduciary duty. Otherwise you can read everything that has been filed to see where the estate process stands at this time.
