    "(Her)(her) mother" can be a subject or an object, so "her mother" can go with "She" or with "her".
    She and her mother came to see me. I went to see her and her mother.

    "her" (object) cannot be paired with "I" (subject), so you cannot say 'Her and I'. But 'her and I' can appear in that sequence when they are not a pair. I told her and I am sorry I did.
