My 401k withdrawal was used to pay my mothers fineral bill

I used a 401k withdrawal to pay for my mothers funeral.  It says death is a reason that will lower my tax bill but does it matter whose death it was?

No, the Box 7 Code 4 Death applies to inherited retirement distributions- if you receive the distribution as a beneficiary, you do not have to pay the additional tax.  In your case, it does not apply.  I am sorry for your loss.
