So even if she overstay in the USA, she will still be eligible to get permanent resident? As you said, the out of status should be excused. But if not, she will not get PR, and never can come back to meet us, once she left USA, is that correct. If yes, could you please suggest, how can we overcome from this?
If she is asked to leave the US, and she has overstayed for only 3 or 4 months, she is not subject to a ban for unlawful presence. But if she is in the US for 6 months or more illegally, then she is subject to a 3 year ban. If she is in the US unlawfully for 1 year or more, she is subject to a 10 year ban.
The only way to overcome this ban is to get approval of the I-601 Waiver of Ground of Inadmissibility. This can only be approved if she can show that a US citizen or permanent resident would suffer extreme hardship if she is not allowed to re-enter the US.This rarely happens in the case of an immediate relative of a US citizen who is 21 years of age or older.

If I wii be applying citizenship in January, it should not take that much long, so as soon as I get citizen I will definitely applying for her. So I can imagine, she will not be overstay not more than 3 months. If she has medical issue, so that she has to stay here for medical purpose for few months. Do you think it will help for to get excuse for this case?
Yes. I think it can be helpful.
But you have to show proof that she was receiving care in order to use that excuse.
