Yes, there is no legal obligation for a fractional owner of a piece of property to notify the other owners if they dispose of their interest in the property. There is also no requirement that the other owners agree or allow any tranfer of another owner's interest.
.
She would just need to have a quitclaim deed drafted up from her as grantor to you as grantee and sign it in front of a notary along with witnesses. Then it would be recorded and the transfer would be complete.
