Suicide is killing oneself. One of the ten commandments - Thou shall not kill (actually it means murder). Suicide is murder of oneself. The last act committed while alive was killing oneself - there is no repentance!
I have seen miracles occur just like millions of other people have. Maybe there would have been one in her life before she died but now we all will never know.

Luke 4:9And he led Him to Jerusalem and had Him stand on the pinnacle of the temple, and said to Him, "If You are the Son of God, throw Yourself down from here; for it is written, 'HE WILL COMMAND HIS ANGELS CONCERNING YOU TO GUARD YOU,'…
His was bronze-age thinking in a more educated modern and understanding world.
Judges 16:29-30 Samson had been chained to the two middle pillars of a temple. He pushed them apart. thereby knowingly causing the collapse of the building, his own suicide and the death of a few thousand Philistines inside. The death toll exceeded the number of people that he had killed during the rest of his life -which was considerable. Samson had been blinded, and no longer wanted to live as a captive. By causing his own death, he had a chance to destroy many of the enemy.
1 Samuel 31:4-6 In a war against the Philistines, Saul's sons Johnathan, Abinadab, and Malchishua were killed, and Saul himself was seriously wounded. He asked his armor bearer to kill him, but his assistant refused. So he took a sword and fell on it. The armor bearer then also fell on his sword. Both ended up committing suicide. The same events are also described in a parallel passage: 1 Chronicles 10:3-7. Saul's justification for committing suicide was that because of his injuries, if the Philistines arrived, he would have been abused and killed by uncircumcised men.
Flavius dramatically recounts the story told him by two surviving women. The defenders – almost one thousand men, women and children – led by ben Yair, burnt down the fortress and killed each other. The Zealots cast lots to choose 10 men to kill the remainder. They then chose among themselves the one man who would kill the survivors. That last Jew then killed himself.
Elazar’s final speech clearly was a masterful oration:
"Since we long ago resolved never to be servants to the Romans, nor to any other than to God Himself, Who alone is the true and just Lord of mankind, the time is now come that obliges us to make that resolution true in practice ...We were the very first that revolted, and we are the last to fight against them; and I cannot but esteem it as a favor that God has granted us, that it is still in our power to die bravely, and in a state of freedom."
He who loves his life loses it, and he who hates his life in this world will keep it to life eternal.

I've made arrangements with my daughter, we have an agreement. She's a research doctor and has access to the best drugs out there, she assures me.
And, yes, I'd do the same for her, should the need arise.
Both my parents had "Living Wills" and I sat with them both while they ended their lives. It took my father 5 days to die. It took my mother 5 hours.
I say act like an adult and when it comes to die NATURALLY then it will happen.
I have the DNR signed with my health care agency, their aids they send to me know that they can't resuscitate me, but I made that decision myself for myself without any input from anyone else and I didn't have to discuss it or make arrangements with my family. So yes, I know what the discussion is about.

You can't die naturally if people are keeping you alive. And people will keep you alive because they think it's the same thing as not killing you
