In the index to The Silmarillion it saysHow did Rian die? The Silmarillion and Unfinished Tales simply stated that she laid herself down some mound where Huor was and died. Did she died of food, or did she kill herself?
The Haudh-en-Ndengin 'The Mound of the Slain' was also known as "The Mound of Tears' where were piled the bodies of the Elves and Men that died in the Nirnaeth Arnoediad, the ruinous fifth battle in the Wars of Beleriand.Rian ... wife of Huor and mother of Tuor; after Huor's death died of grief on the Haudh-en-Ndengin.
but I also suppose that Rian didn’t saw a chance to raise and support Tuor. It would have been like in other cultures that a woman can’t exist without a man.
