Being that she was a school teacher, might there be something in the Gazettes that may trace her where-abouts?

Thanks KHP!  ;D

I have already looked for his probate without success, but never under THRUSTON.

And TwiggyTrees, good idea, I'll try the NZ Gazette.

Just in case you hadn't stumbled across this on the WWW for Herbert Edward Thruston/Thurston, its a death notice for his mother and lists both his parents as having passed.  So if Mary was to go somewhere it's not likely to be there.

THRUSTON 14 Feb 1915, Norwich, England, Mary, widow of late C F Thruston, Talgath Hall, Merionethshire, m/o Herbert E Thurston, Mangere, aged 89. . [AWN 25 Feb 1915]

Notice for Herbert

http://www.rootschat.com/links/0e34/

Note both of these are under THRUSTON too, so that may well be the key to finding Mary.
