Genesis 23:1-2 says:
And Sarah was an hundred and seven and twenty years old: these were the years of the life of Sarah.

2 And Sarah died in Kirjatharba; the same is Hebron in the land of Canaan: and Abraham came to mourn for Sarah, and to weep for her.

The Bible doesn't give a reason for Sarah's death, but these two verses cause me to believe she simply died of old age, especially the phrase "these were the years of the life of Sarah". After all, 127 years is a lot!
