I'm sorry to hear about this case. The answer to your question is that it depends on the terms of your operating agreement. If your operating agreement gives you the right of first refusal or somehow limits the sale of the shares in the LLC, then you could prevent her from doing so. Otherwise, she can sell her share in the LLC to another person. It's kind of like if people co-own property. One person can sell their shares and you would have another owner involved and there is not much you can do. I would recommend negotiating with her about a buyout over time or maybe paying a premium if you can pay for her shares once a month or something to that degree.
