There may be a slight delay in my responses as I research statutes or ordinances and type out an answer or reply,but rest assured, I am working on your question.
If she left it to the 5 children, then unless she specifically stated in her will that her children had to survive her, then if a child died, their estate would inherit that child's share and it would pass down to the child's heirs or beneficiaries.
So yes, it is very likely that the deceased children's heirs will inherit their 20% to divide up between them.
You are very welcome. Happy to help any time.
If you feel your original question and any related follow ups have been answered, I would very much appreciate a positive rating on the answer I have provided as that is the only way I receive credit for my work. If you have a new question the JustAnswer folks require that you start a new question page, but you can request me by putting"For Barrister" in the caption and they will get it to me.
Have a great afternoon!
