A friend I had lost touch with died recently. She was 83 y/o and refused to even see a doctor. She died 3 months after a good friend noticed she wasn't quite herself at a social function.

Symtoms : increasing weakness, sores in mouth, swollen feet, some weight loss but not extreme. She died peacefully at home, in her bed, in her sleep.

I am just curious as to cause. I was thinking CHF but the mouth sores?

CHF is a likely diagnosis. The mouth sores could be a result of stress on the body. If your friend had a latent virus in her body, mouth sores may have become active due to the heart trying unsuccessfully to compensate.

I'm sorry for your loss.

CHF seems to be most likely culprit. Or a viral infection.

What is CHF? Old age seems the likely culprit!

Congestive (or Chronic) Heart Failure

The heart just gets tired and quits

Heart failure - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

"Old Age" can be any number of actual conditions.
