We went through that with 'Mama', a cat we adopted when my wife's aunt passed away. Mama was essentially feral, and hadn't socialized much at all while the aunt had her. We brought her and a second cat who was friendly home after the funeral, and let them take up residence in our guest room so they could get used to the move. We didn't see Mama for a month. The guest room has some antique furniture that she would hide behind/under.

After a while, Mama started to come out. We'd occasionally catch her laying out on the floor in a spot of sun. She eventually let me pet her, and toward the last I could rub her tummy and even pick her up and hold her. Sadly, she passed away just when she started to accept us.
