Have you checked FreeBMD for possible deaths and remarriages?

Have you looked on 1901 & 1911 Irish census to see if they went back there?

Yes I think her father died 1901 in Knutsford. But Thomas and Mary ann seem to have disappeared.

It may be worth getting a copy of James Foy's death certificate to see who the informant was - might give a clue (but might not!)
