Assalamu Alaikum wa Rahmatullahi wa Barakatuh
First of all, we commend your efforts on getting well-acquaintant with Islamic teachings and implore that Allah, the Most High (swt) grants you with all the best.
Our Beloved Brother/Sister Frnz
Despite the fact that her one brother and two sisters along with her father are alive when she passed away, the inheritor of this single lady you mentioned is "not" her siblings but "only her father." Therefore, her entire property passes to her father.
In this respect, her one brother and two sisters are not to receive any share from their deceased sister's inheritance since that single lady's whole property is left to her father. (Religious Affairs High Council)
