Walaykum salam.     That's a very interesting story sister.  It's extremely thought provoking.  Indeed, if I was in their shoes, I would have been similarly moved. 

You know, such incidents are again just as hard to interpret as dreams.   No one but Allah would know what exactly that elderly lady had in mind when she repeatedly waved goodbye to her loved ones, something she wasn't inclined to normally.   Even if she felt that the final Journey was close, it's impossible to confirm if she knew she was leaving the very next day.    It is  likely that The Almighty put this desire in her to connect more closely with her loved ones because her time here was almost over.  But whether or not she knew that cannot be confirmed.   In my opinion, I don't think she knew it.   Only Allah would know what precisely she was thinking at that time or how she felt.

Only Allah Almighty decides the exact time of death of every living being.   Sometimes the bereaved argue why they lost their loved ones.  Such an attitude is not becoming of a sincere believer who believes in the Will of Allah and accepts it, which all believers must.    As clarified by Al-Ghazali in the 12th century,  no one can predict death nor its time.   It can happen any time to any one.  Only Allah knows it.  We only know that death is inevitable, that it's a gateway from this fleeting life on earth to an existence of immortality in the Hereafter.     Yes, some people can have an inexplicable feeling that perhaps their time is coming near to leave the temporary world for the permanent one, but they can never know the exact time of departure. 

Moreover, such inexplicable feelings don't always come true.  Either because of emotional or physical stress, a person may sometimes feel that way.  In some cases it may come true soon enough, but in other cases such persons may recover and their death may occur several years or many years later.   Exact knowledge of departure is only with Allah.

The important point to mention here is that whether or not such a feeling comes true, it is insignificant.  It has no bearing on a person's moral status or the aspect of virtue.  Only Allah knows the quality of their souls .. the strength of their Faith and their deeds.  That's what matters.   Thus, quoting Allah Almighty in Surah Luqman and Surah Al-Imraan: 

“Verily, Allah! With Him (Alone) is the knowledge of the Hour, He sends down the rain, and knows that which is in the wombs. No person knows what he will earn tomorrow, and no person knows in what land he will die. Verily, Allah is All-Knower, All-Aware (of things)”  (Luqmaan 31:34).

“Everyone shall taste death. And only on the day of resurrection shall you be paid your wages in full. And whoever is removed away from the fire and admitted to paradise, this person is indeed successful. The life of this world is only the enjoyment of deception.” (Al-Imraan 3:185).
