If you received a 1099R that has the 2015 year on it for a distribution from a retirement account then yes, you include it with your 2015 tax return.
You can tell me more about the distribution if you are not sure how or about it.

If the 1099R was made out to you and not your mother-in-law then yes. If it was sent with her name on it then no.
If sent in her name it is taxed to her estate.
Does it have your name or your spouse's name on the 1099R?
Then yes, the annuity was paid to your spouse. It should include all the information needed to determine the taxable amount. The cost of the annuity is not taxable and that should be shown on the 1099R.
