What if my grandmother had a will that stated that all her children were named as beneficiary but, the will did not put in thier names separately on the will then if my mother had died would I still be able to collect my mothers portion of estste

Hello and thanks for submitting this question. The designation of "all my children" in a will is quite legal whether they are individually named or not. If the words "who survive me" were not included, then the children of the deceased child, i.e. you and your siblings will inherit your mother's share.
