You need an attorney to help. you.
1. What paper? IF mom was on as joint tenants with you, anyone who knows she is dead can complete an Affidavit of Death of Joint Tenant. Also, if home was in joint tenancy between you and mom, it is now yours irrespective of what mom's dead says. Joint tenancy trumps a will.
2. If mom was not a joint tenant AND grandmother prepared a document to take mom off and recorded it, the title to your home is now messed up. You absolutely need an attorney today.

You have not provided sufficient information to opine whether title belongs to estate.
Review deeds, chain of title, facts with counsel.

Impossible to say without seeing what happened. Have an attorney check the title to the house to see if what was done is proper.
