No she is not. As soon as she got married the petition was automatically cancelled since her father was only a PR. Her subsequent marriage does not revive the petition or unrevoke it. The Immigrant Visa application (Forms DS-230I&II) specifically asked if a person is single (never married), married, or divorced.
