There could be different reasons they are dying. They could just have something genetic wrong with them or something. She could be a young inexperienced mother and not be feeding them or keeping them warm properly. She could be stressed from all the changes in her life and killing them. She might be malnourished and be unable to care for them physically, or be eating them because she's malnourished.
From what little I've read, mice are very sensitive to noise and disturbances while nesting with babies. If she isn't already, I'd make sure she was in a warm, quiet room with lots of nesting materials and a good diet. I don't know enough, but if she has a cage mate, you might want to remove the cagemate since they aren't that familiar with each other. That may be poor advice though.
If they're still pinkies, the the odds of you being able to hand rear them are very slim. It would require 24 hour care for the next few weeks. They have a better chance being left with their mother.
