I have no advice, but I am so sorry for your loss. I recently lost my mare unexpectedly after a suspected guttural pouch infection, so I know how tough it is, and I continue to struggle with it, so if I was in your situation, I'd opt for the necropsy for any piece of mind.

I am very sorry to hear of your loss and the upsetting events that led up to it. I realize it is probably too late now, but I had a similar experience many years ago and like you, decided that an autopsy wouldn't change anything so decided not to have one done. I have to say that there is hardly a day that goes by that I don't regret that decision. Having an answer one way or the other has a lot of value as you move forward. It still haunts me that I don't know and I frequently ask myself, "maybe that was what was wrong".

My heart goes out to you as you grieve for your mare.

I just wanted to offer you the biggest cyber hug I could possibly offer (((HUG))). You sound like an outstanding and independent wife, mom, and animal lover. God bless you and I mean that from the bottom of my heart.
