There is no CURE for SLE, however, the disease can go into remission times when the symptoms are very mild or non-existant.  However, this does not mean that the SLE is not there anymore and a flare can crop up at any time.  Flares can also affect different parts of the body at different times - what might affect her joints this time might affect her internal organs next.

If she is having good control of her symptoms with the medication, I would definitely suggest continuing it.
