I am so sorry for your loss.  I hate to ask the obvious but WHO told you that there was a trust?  how do they know? Are they the trustee?  Trusts are not public record as they are not generally filed anywhere like a Will for all to see.  If there was a trust then ten to one her assets are part of that trust.  If you are a beneficiary of the trust then you should receive notice.  But contact her lawyer and find out if he or she can give you any information.  Good luck.
