    Assuming you do have admin privileges on your user...

    Go to System Preferences > Accounts
    Click the lock at the bottom, authenticate with your user id/password
    Highlight her account id, then click the - sign down below.

    Please verify and include the exact model/year of your Mac and OS X version number (available from "About This Mac", then "More Info" on the Apple menu).
