    Welcome to iMore! It sounds like your sister had Find My iPhone turned on and you will need her Apple ID and password. Just so you're not wasting your own time, I'll emphasize that this is the ONLY way into that phone and you basically have a paperweight. What I recommend is having your sister go to https://iforgot.apple.com and resetting her password, then giving it to you so you can get in and log her out of Find My iPhone.
    Let us know if you have any questions. Best of luck!
