If her citizenship was through Marriage to a US Citizen (appears to be so based on your timeline) then they are eligible to apply for citizenship 90 days before the 3rd anniversary of receiving the card (so 90 days before 5/20/11 - you do the math)

This assumes of course that in the meantime she does not leave the country for more than 6 months in any given year, or do anything which would indicate she abandonned her residency.

The date you can apply is actually 3 months before the third anniversary of "getting approved" for the GC, not the date you received the GC physically in the mail.

You may have understood that, but I'm just clarifying.

Ah yes, I mis-read what had been typed - in my mind they were approved for the green card on 5/20... but the OP did say received... sorry.
