she was mentioned when jacob was thinking about bella faking her death how the coffin could be nailed shut.. just like his mother.. or that they could say she died in an accident.. just like his mother.
surely that wasnt how she really died.
Ok FOund you're answers at this website: http://www.twilightlexiconblog.com/?page_id=17
It's SM's Personal Correspondance. However, these questions were answered around the time that New Moon came out and so it is possible that she ended up deciding exactly how Jacob's mother died. Here you go:
Q: What happened to Billy Black that he can’t walk anymore?
A: He has diabetes, which caused nerve damage in his feet and legs. He hasn’t had to have anything amputated yet, but he’ll never walk again.
Q. What happened to Jacob’s mother?
A. She died in an uneventful way. I haven’t decided exactly how because there’s never been a need to set it in stone for the story (not everything is determined, despite what some think. I leave many details open until I have a reason to fix them a certain way). I only know that there wasn’t any mystery or unnecessary drama about Sarah’s death. It was, of course, a very sad thing in Billy’s, Jacob’s, Rachel’s, and Rebecca’s lives (and one reason why the twin sisters are more comfortable away from the sad memories of their home). However, Jacob was young and he is naturally resilient. He recovered well.
