    Put it in a drawer and use your own phone.

    She might be able to log in to her account on icloud.com and remove the device from her account there. What happened is that Find My iPhone was turned on, which sets the Factory Reset Protection flag, preventing any ID other than hers from logging in after a reset (Google has a similar setup). Without proof of ownership of the device, Apple won't help but she might be able to remove from her account using the web site.

    Our friends at iMore | The #1 site for iPhone, iPad, Mac, and all things Apple! might have a little more insight but the bottom line is the device may be useless without her account.
