I am not 100% sure of what you are asking here, but if you were an "authorized user" on the accounts and want to get your name removed from the accounts, you should fist notify the credit card companies of your Mom's passing over and that you want to be removed from the accounts. Then you will need to notify the credit bureaus and tell them that you want these accounts removed from your reports. If you were a "joint account holder" rather than just an "authorized user" then you would not be able to do this. On second though, maybe  you should just contact the credit bureaus first and ask them to remove the accounts, might save some headaches with the credit card companies. The three credit bureaus are Transunion, Equifax and Experian, they all have websites with contact info.
