She died from Aplastic anemia I am quite sure you can guess that is was almost certainly from handing radioactive materials unsafely. Which they didn't really know the dangers about yet. There is also a story about radioactive materials in test tubes that she had in her desk because she like the nice glow they gave off. Aplastic anemia is a condition where bone marrow does not produce sufficient new red blood cells to replenish the blood. Marie Curie died in 1934, of what was described as an aplastic pernicious anaemia of rapid, feverish development. This was nearly identical a diagnosis given for the first reported radiation-related death of a radium dial painter. "Rapidly progressing anaemia of the pernicious type" (Martland 1925). It is argued that her death was not a result of Radium exposure because pernicious anaemia believed to be caused by radiation exposures. it is quite likely that her doctor had misdiagnosed her illness, Indeed, her daughter, Eve Curie, wrote (1937): "the abnormal symptoms, the blood tests, differing from those in any known case of pernicious anaemia, accused the true criminal: radium." Marie's eldest daughter and collaborator, Irene Curie, died in her mid-50s of leukaemia. Reference: Curie, E. Madame Curie. Doubleday; Garden City, NY; 1937. Paul Frame, CHP, Ph.D.

On April 19, 1906, Pierre was killed in a street accident. Walking across the Rue Dauphine in heavy rain, he was struck by a horse-drawn vehicle and fell under its wheels, fracturing his skull.

Marie Curie died from a form of anemia, more than likely caused by the radioactive isotopes she was exposed to whilst completing her research.
