Such a sudden and unexpected loss of someone you knew, is never easy. But it won't remain overwhelmingly disturbing to you for long. Seeing a counsellor could help, and indeed, it would be sensible for management to have someone made available as there may well be more people than you that feel similarly shocked and upset.
You know she would want you to continue with your work, and would not want you to feel too deeply bad, but rather work towards remembering all the things that made her dear to you and others.
