Your sister is behaving rudely, your daughter's behaviour is perfectly normal
for a 3 year old. If your relatives want to have a good relationship with her
in the future they should be encouraged to back off with her now.

It's too much to expect a three year old to be able to respond to a
persistent questioner with "I don't want to talk right now, please." It's not too much
for adults to be expected to give a child some space without pestering them.

An adult gently greeting a child and being given a nasty reply is different
from an adult pestering a child repeatedly when the child is not responding.
It's teasing and it's not nice.
