This is an interesting story, Sharon. I would doubt very much that your
great aunt died as a result of having no womb or ovaries. What is much
more likely is that other defects were associated. The womb develops
along with the kidneys and urinary system and I would hazard a guess
that the cause of death would have been kidney failure as a result of
co-existing defects. Do you have a death certificate in the family to
show the cause of death?
