My sister is a signer on my father's checking account. She used money from that account to pay for funeral expenses. We now have a personal representative (court assigned, and not an heir or devisee) and she is asking for all our father's assets from the date of death. I think my sister is worried that she will have to pay this money back to the estate. I'm sure all heirs and devisees would agree on the expenses for the funeral, as they were not excessive and were necessary. Could the PR require my sister to pay this back to the estate? The estate assets are much greater than all debts owed, but none of the assets are liquid, and there are expenses which the Personal Representative will need to pay, such as property insurance, taxes, etc.
