Is there a way to hide all activity generated by another Facebook user without actually blocking that user? Details inside.

I don't want to see any of my mom's activity on Facebook. I know how to hide posts from the newsfeed, but her posts are not the problem. What I really want is to not see any of her "likes" or comments.
My mother and I have a difficult relationship. Basically, she has no boundaries.
She has friended all of my closest friends on Facebook, and she constantly "likes" their posts and makes comments on them. (There are other issues vis-a-vis boundaries, but my question chiefly concerns Facebook).
I've realized that I can't make her stop. I just don't want to see her activity on my friends' posts, because it upsets me almost every time.
I don't think blocking her is the solution. I understand that blocking would make it so that I don't see her activity, but I don't want to cause any drama. I'm fine if she sees my stuff; I just don't want to see her stuff.
Is there a way to hide all activity generated by a certain user without blocking them? Sort of a one-way block where I cannot see her at all but without alerting her to this fact? I have combed Google and Ask MeFi but I could not find an answer to this.
I'm in therapy to help me deal with my feelings about my relationship with my mom, but in the meantime I just wonder if there's a practical way to hide her Facebook activity so I can visit my friends' posts without getting upset.
