Mum has MCI, one of her children is terminally ill. Should she be told?

I have a feeling that you are right - the same thing would happen about her sister. She would not remember the specifics, but have a perception that something bad was happening, so she would keep asking.
Thank you Canary, this aspect has been mentioned by the medical staff looking after my sister.

I am so sorry. Please do ask for support for yourself if you need it - Macmillan would be a good place to start. https://www.macmillan.org.uk/cancer...ne/coping-with-bereavement/support-with-grief - there is a freephone number further down the page.
Thank you Veritas and thank you to everyone who has been so kind and helpful with their thoughts. Sadly, my sister passed away peacefully this afternoon with another of my sisters by her side. Her suffering is now thankfully over.
