Office 365 Account and Login

My wife volunteers for a philanthropic organization that operates a retail store.  The organization purchased two laptop PCs (each using Windows 10) to assist volunteers who handle the accounts payable process for the store.  The volunteer who purchased the laptops secured an Office 365 license for each PC but used her personal email address in setting up each one.  She would like to have her personal email removed.  Am I able to change the Office 365 login on each machine and keep the Office 365 license intact for each user?

I believe for what you are after, you can just open any Office program (like PowerPoint) and then click "Switch Account" at the top-right corner of opening screen.  When you go there, you'll see a sign out option, and that's it.  The Office program can still be used without being logged in to her personal account, and this will prevent anyone from inadvertently opening her own personal OneDrive or other files.
