If the house was foreclosed on and sold at auction, then whatever it brought over what was owed would go into the mother's estate to pass down to her heirs according to her will.
The line of credit and any other debt owed on it would have been extinguished when the house was foreclosed on.
So whatever the will says about who inherits any surplus money would control what happened to anything over what was owed on the house.
