Was there any clicking when she first put it in drive? I had the same situation when I was at a customer's farm. I pulled in, took care of business and tried to back away from the barn and it clicked - and that was it. I was able to go forward so ended up driving through a field to get to the road and made it to a tiny Chrysler/Jeep dealership that diagnosed a bad shift module. I was stuck with no choices so had the dealership replace the module for $700 - was thankful they had the part in stock.
Anyway, after watching the tech work on it the repair is very straightforward. The module is attached to the driver's/left side of the transmission and is held on with three bolts IIRC and one wire harness. They had me on the road in an hour and I'd imagine it would be about 2 hours at home on the garage floor.
The frustrating part of the issue is there were no codes thrown and no indication of what it was until it was diagnosed at the dealership.
