    That statement is a bit confusing to me. If it is a joint account then she should inherit the card and she should already have the history on her credit report. If it was his account and she was AUed that is a slight distinction. I am not well versed in how these things work when someone passes away. In my understanding you are correct in your assumptions. It should be weighed equally to anything else moving forward.
