Brief Answer:
Should be ok.

Detailed Answer:
I read your question carefully and I understand your concern.

It might be useful to know whether the doctors identified a cause for her strokes and if yes whether she is taking any medication to avoid other strokes from happening in the future.

However the answer is yes, she should be ok to fly now, flying won't increase the risk of another stroke from happening. If you can provide the information I mentioned I might be even more assertive, but unlikely to change my opinion.

I remain at your disposal for other questions.
