Answer

Mother-in-law is pretty much a title without much legal meaning. If you keep her in your family, she can be referred to as your friend, or as your mother-in-law.

Answer

No. The legal relationship that made her your mother-in-law was legally dissolved. You can certainly remain friends and "family" if you have a good relationship with her. You can still call her your mother-in-law even though that relationship ended with the divorce.
