She was buried at Waikumete Cemetery, Auckland, New Zealand (note the discrepancy in the death date, which is given here as 30 December 1903 - perhaps this is actually the burial date):

A short obituary names her brother as Samuel Jones and confirms the death date as 28 December 1903:

"Deaths," Auckland Star, Volume XXXIV, Issue 310, 29 December 1903, Page 8; ''Papers Past'' (https://paperspast.natlib.govt.nz/newspapers/AS19031229.2.59 : accessed 15 February 2020); National Library of New Zealand.
