I'm not certain of any potential the Trust issue here. However, it appears that the deed is not in the Trust. That being the case, then upon your grandmother's death the home should pass as provided for in her Wiil. If there is no Will, then your granmother died "intestate", which means that her estate is subject to state intestacy law. Typically, since your grandfather predeceased your grandmother, then her children would be her heirs...not her grandchildren.
