The ownership of the house is based upon what the deed states. You are a co-owner so you can not be kicked out. A Power of Attorney, which incidentally lasts only while the person is alive, can b e no greater than the rights the person giving it has. So she can not kick you out.

Depends on how much power she has under the POA. However, since you are on the deed (and it has been recorded) I don't see how she can take it away from you. If it has not been recorded, she could tear up the deed.

If you are on the deed you have nothing to worry about.
