According to the Hindu Succession Act,1956 Section 15, The property of a female Hindu dying intestate (without making a Will) shall devolve , in this particular case to sub section 1(b) upon the heirs of the husband, as she/deceased female neither had any children nor her husband is alive. If case those heirs of husband give no objection in favour of your mother who is covered under the category sub section 1(d) the heirs of the father of the female; than her portion of land can be got transferred in the name of your mother.

According to law of Joint ownership or co ownership of two persons if one of them dies intestate according to law of survivorship both the house and land passes to his surviving co owner.Since your mother is the only surviving coowner the remaining 50% share of deceased coowner passes to the other Joint owner qua your mother with full ownership rights to the entire land and house.
