I'm assuming what you're saying is you all paid equally for a funeral, and your sister pocketed all of a refund by the funeral parlor. You would be entitled to your pro-rata share of that refund. If the total refund was only $500+ this might be a matter to take to small claims court, which may or may not be worth your time.
I am sorry for the loss of your mother. When you are talking about money I think the decision as to whether to pursue it is a straight up business decision. I would not ever pursue $500 or $586, even if you are entitled to it. Lawyers are paid substantial amounts per hour. I don't know a lawyer who works on a contingency who wants part of, or even all of $500 or $586. If you sue someone in small claims court you are looking at being at the courthouse in front of the judge at least once, possibly twice, on top of the time and money it takes to file the lawsuit. I think you are entitled to it. I wouldn't pursue it.
