Firstly, a legal Heir Certificate can be obtained by Husband/wife/mother/son/daughter of the deceased member. In your case you can apply for legal heir certificate.
As is written in the query that the nominee has been changed (month before the death) it may be difficult for you to claim from her insurance.
