Can the executrix of your parents estate collect her administrative fees plus a fee for an IRA that had named beneficiaries if the probating of the estate has not been concluded?

Certainly. Cost associated with the estate, including fees for maintaining IRAs and the executor's fees are charged against the estate and recorded. There is no requirement to wait until everything is finished to collect the fee.
