I have had the female for three years and her sisters died. I decided I wanted to breed her, but is unsure if she will breed with the 4 month old male guppy I have with her.

I have breed guppies before by accident

she is actually one of the accidents

I do not know of anyway to test a specific individual. 3 years is sort of the upper limit of the guppy reproductive lifecycle. Just wait and see if she gives birth is about the only way.

Guppies will continue to get pregnant and birth fry until they reach the end of their life, even ill guppies will carry fry to term and give birth to them, my oldest female is around two years old and she is massive (like store bought molly large).
