Rather late to this discussion, but from context I would query the earlier answer:

She sent two men for timber and she never even cried

She's sending them for wood to make a cheap coffin ( a board of alder and a board of holly...).

Regards


I would have read it as "She's already buried two husbands/lovers and never even cried"

Cheers
