The two characters lives intersect.

The one main character is referring to her mom (Mary) in past tense as she has died before the story starts.  I have written this referencing the mom as both "her mom" and "Mary" but I feel it's confusing and that I should stick to one or the other. 

Which one would be the best?

I’m confused as to how it is omniscient but two different points of view.

Be very clear which POV you are in for a particular scene. Use dialogue to keep it clear. Her POV should always refer to Mum, but others can say Mary. In other POVs refer to Mary in the narrative.

Yeah that's not third omniscient.
