Did he have children at all, not just from this marriage?
Are his parents alive?
Then the separate property does go to the siblings.
Can you explain what you are asking about the quitclaim?
Are you still there?
There is a legal theory normally known as adverse possession but in LA it is called acquisitive prescription.
It is a thirty year time frame and there is no way to reduce it.
A quitclaim deed is just a deed from someone who may own an interest in the property to someone else.
In this case, the only way she would acquire anything by a quitclaim deed is if the siblings quitclaimedit to her.
She could also ask them if they would give her a life estate in the property. That would allow her to use it for the term of her life and then when she passes away it is theirs.
