If she held title with you as joint tenants with right of survivorship, you automatically inherited her share when she died. Nothing has to be done except likely record her death certificate at the county clerk's office.
If she held title with you as tenant in common, then her estate needs to be probated to pass her interest. Who inherits her interest depends on whether she had a will or not. See a local lawyer to help.
The deed by which she was added will tell you how she held title with you. If silent on which of the two above, she was a tenant in common and probate of her estate is needed.
TO ALL QUESTIONERS: I provide this answer in an effort to assist and guide only. The answers are qualified further by you providing the full and complete facts and background or not, and by the space limitations of this forum. The answer does not serve as a substitute for a live sit-down with an attorney. In no way is any answer to be construed as a formal giving of legal advice nor is an attorney-client relationship formed. You are not permitted to quote or refer to answers given in any court pleading or hearing. TO QUESTIONERS FROM WV & NY: Although I am licensed to practice in your state, be advised that I practice on a day-to-day basis in Massachusetts. I answer questions in your state in areas of the law in which I practice, and in which I feel comfortable trying to offer you assistance based on my knowledge of specific statutes in your state and/or general principles applicable in all states. Being licensed to practice there, however, does not provide me with the detailed knowledge of local procedures and practices that comes from day-to-day work. It is always best to work with attorneys and court personnel in your own area to deal with specific problems and factual situations.
