There is no marriage listed for her in England and nothing that I can find on Ancestry apart from that which I posted above.
Maybe someone else will be able to find more for you.
Do you know if she had a middle name at all?

Trying to trace a Asta Cohn who was last known to be residng in Glasgow in 1941 at a Dr Mann's residence eitherat 46 Queen Mary Avenue Glasgow or 182 Queen Drive Glasgow. I have been through the scottish records in registrar house Edinburgh looking for marriage or death but have drawn a blank. May be she went down to England. She was born either 1917 or 1922 Her mothers name was Rebekka Cohn
Sorry that is all the information I have. Can anybody be of any
