Power of attorney only means that if your mother can not be physically present to sign something or give consent, then your sister can act in a way consist with what your mother would want. Find out what your mother wants to do. If she has already died, the power of attorney disappears and the person appointed administrator of the Will determines, with court approval, what to do.

A power of attorney allows the holder to act for a person while they are alive. This would appear to be legal.
