Fork under $100 for old Trek 820?

I'm trying to restore an '02 or thereabouts Trek 820 which belongs to my mother-in-law. The bike's been sitting outside for a couple years and the fork (RST pos) is totally shot. I turned the bike upside down and about 5 gallons of rainwater, etc came out of the stanchions...

She is not a mtb'r currently but wants to get into some easy XC riding, etc. Can you guys recommend a fork that can be had for $100 or less that isn't complete crap? (like RST, Suntour) She will be doing very non-aggressive riding, so it won't get much abuse. If you know of any specials online or whatever, please chime in. Thanks!

There's a brand new, never-installed 04 Judy TT on ebay right now for a $60 buy-it-now.

An XC would be better, but . . .

Does she need a shock? I would get a sus-corrected rigid fork for $20 at your LBS.
