Because she overcame her addiction to morphine and died free of her addiction
Atticus says that Mrs. Dubose is a model of real courage rather than "a man with a gun in his hand". What does he mean? Do you think he is right?

I think that you should die free of an addiction or any kind of physical then so that you can go peacefully. I do think Mrs. the bed had a real courage because she wanted to die without being addicted to morphine
