It likely passes to his kids here, most wills provide if the person predeceases then it passes to their children equally.She may want to update her will if this is not her intent to do so.She can do a new one and leave it to whoever she wants under Ohio law. Bot***** *****ne here is the will controls likely it passes to his kids unless she does a new will.She should consider that if she wants to leave it to her other siblings rather than his kids.
