She will have to go to the probate court and be named as the personal representative of his estate. I assume that he is the sole shareholder. The personal representative can vote his shares. She can then vote herself in as president and do a corporate resolution that she be added to the corporate checking account. Check with the bank manager but that should be sufficient.
