"The New England Historical & Genealogical Register, 1847-2011" by The New England Historic Genealogical Society, Volume 115, page 259 says that she died on 25 January 1712 at the age of 61. I also have "Mayflower Births and Deaths, Vol. 1, page 6 which gives her birth date as 24 Feb in Duxbury (not 25). Perhaps a typo as the body of the bio says 24 and the header info says 25.
