Hi,
I found her death message in the old Newspaper,
date 29-09-1966

the text underneath says that the American writer Lillian who became famous with her book ''Verboden vrucht''(published 1944) has died yesterday after long being sick (cancer), at the age of 69 in Atlanta, Georgia

Lillian Smith overleden
De Amerikaanse schrijfster Lillian . die internationale faam verwierf met haar omstreden boek „Verboden vrucht", is gisteren na een lang ziekbed op 69jarige leeftijd in Atlanta (Georgia) i „Vreemd fruit", over een uitzichtloze liefde tussen een blanke jongen en een negermeisje, werd In 1944 gepubliceerd. Er werden meer dan 30 miljoen exemplaren van verkocht, Lillian Smith leed aan kanker

it's in a few papers , is it indeed the person you search?
She didn't die in NL , but was wel very wel known as it seems.
