Are you the profile manager on her profile, or on the trusted list? If so, you have to be careful to note if you are accessing the profile in public view or private view. The tabs are on opposite ends of the menu. In private view, you can see everything. In public view, you see what the general public sees. It is a good way to double-check your work to make sure it appears how you want it to. To edit, you will be in private view.
If the privacy is still wrong, you'll have to go into the privacy tab and alter that. Only an unlisted profile appears as "Living." others do show the name. Of course, since your mother is living, you'll have to set her to unlisted in the privacy tab.
