Would this reflect the entire amount of her share of inheritance?
That is unlikely because a K-1 is only filled out for income that is distributed to a beneficiary rather than retained by a trust so it doesn't have to pay very high income taxes on it.
If wife is a beneficiary of a trust, she can just contact the law firm and request a copy to see what her inheritance is.
