Default 2003 Vue w/bad trans, stalling out

A coworker of mine has the dreaded screeching happening on her 2003 4-cyl Vue automatic, so it's quite likely that the trans is on it's way out.
She says the noise just started today. It shuddered a little bit, then smoothed out and drove fine after that.
But she said the car also stalled out twice on the way to work while driving, something it doesn't normally do. Also, she had the ignition switch replaced under recall a few months ago, so it's not that.
She says the lights were fine, and it started up completely normal. So no dead battery or alternator.

So my question is first of all, is there a general time frame that she can expect complete trans failure? If it's a least a couple of weeks, she'll be able to find another ride at least.
And is it possible the trans could be causing it to stall?

REWARD EXCELLENCE!

It failed on her way to work this evening.

Amazing. No sign of trouble previously, and dead within 2 days of first symptoms showing up.

REWARD EXCELLENCE!
