State School for Mental Defectives, Newark, New York - Ella Mae Wright, Inmate

I am looking for information on a State School for Mental Defectives inmate named Ella Mae Wright, b. about 1890 in the vicinity of Martinsburg, Lewis County, NY. Her parents were Adelbert N. & Helen Snyder Wright, Lewis County, NY. Ella Mae was living in Lewis County until at least April 1910. She came to the institution sometime after April 1910 and before 1915. I found her starting in the 1915 NY State Census and every census until 1930. After 1930 there is no trace of her that I can find. Does anyone know anything about what happened to the inmates if they passed away while living at the institution or if there are records available?
