No - if you did not apply, you did not get a SS number.
Many women did not apply. Also, she was over 70 years old when SS numbers were first issued - it's doubtful she was employed.

Does anyone know if everyone was automatically issued a SS number in 1937
when the SSA came into being? I am trying to find out the maiden name of my
greatgrandmother, AGNES MARY MALLETT, who was born in 1865 and died in 1949 in
Brooklyn, NY. Would she have had to apply for a SS card and been assigned a
number? How can I find out?
I would appreciate any information anyone could offer.
