My condolences on the loss of your father. Potentially yes a verbal contract can be enforced. The forum to enforce this would be small claims. What also is an issue here is the fact that it is illegal for someone to post date a check with the intent to commit fraud, meaning never intended to honor the money for the amount the check was made for. This is evidence that unless she intended to commit fraud she indeed intended to enter into a verbal agreement.
All my best & encouragement.
