Phenix City, AL asked in Probate for Illinois

Q: Mom passed in 2013. Saw a probate case from 2006 online. Could it be hers since she was still alive? Chicago, IL

passes Jan 2013

I have a case number but when I looked it up, it stated the first 2 numbers were the year. Could this be my mom, even though she was still alive? Or is it another woman with the same name since she was alive? How can we find out any additional details?
