She's been a widow for 20 years, presumably the half a lifetime. Why caused her to move there in 1951? Her coming is random just as her going is, but it was a catastrophic choice on her part.
I thought her savings were completely wiped out too, and would have to go back to work, though “no longer young”. And it also struck me as odd that she had moved there in the first place - she didn’t seem to have any connections there. I thought it was probably a financial decision- a cheap place to live on the modest income from her late husband.
