Informal cause of death - she had suffered from chrinic bronchitus for 3 years. Her condition had deteriorated till she was not able to exhale carbon dioxide properly. In addition to this, she caught a cold and was not able to cough up the mucus trapped in her lungs. She appeared to have decided not to go on fighting for her life, hence the reference to depression.
