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).
