I just read in a mystery (The Fig Eater, by Jody Shields) that it was a Hungarian custom to dress unmarried young women in bridal white for burial.  Assuming that is true -- and the book seems pretty well-researched, if nothing else -- II wonder if Lois had heard of the custom when she wrote Aftermath or just thought it would be a poignant gesture.
