How did the woman at Bethany know to pour the ointment onto Jesus, or did she know why she was doing it?

It seems as if the woman knew Jesus would soon die, but the disciples were caught completely off guard. If even the disciples were caught off-guard, how did she know what was going to happen?

Matthew 26:6 - 13

NLT - 6 Meanwhile, Jesus was in Bethany at the home of Simon, a man who had previously had leprosy. 7 While he was eating, a woman came in with a beautiful alabaster jar of expensive perfume and poured it over his head.
