This burial record is a match on name and address...

https://dof.belfastcity.gov.uk/burialsearch/BurialSearch.aspx?GraveSection=F6&GraveNumber=570B&CemeteryName=Dundonald%20Cemetery

The Belfast street directories from 1943 - 1960 on the Lennon Wylie website list a Mrs. J. Gourley at that address.

You haven't mentioned any dates, so not sure if this is her or maybe her mother?

Death notices in local newspapers suggest that this was indeed the mother, the daughter Jean was married to William and they had a son Paul. Jean senior (nee Boyd) was married to Thomas Gourley in 1921:
