Mary Carroll from Glanduff, Kiltoom was seriously injured when the car she was driving struck a wall, just before 5pm evening.
She died later at Portiuncula Hospital at around 9pm.
Mrs Carroll was a widow and had no children.
Councillor and distant relative Paddy Kilduff told Midlands Radio that locals are disgusted.
"Her house was, I have to say, defiled last night, where people, someone, broke into it while her body wasn't cold," he said.
"Out the country here, there's a lot of respect when people die.
"People see this, [they are] very upset over it, they think it's an appalling thing to do."
