> I know it's not fair to my T

That's a start.

>I really can't understand a line of reasoning which would have her just silently waiting around for me to hear news that so predictably started a depressive swing.

I think you can tell her how hearing about his suicide affected you and how it relates to your own thoughts of suicide. Her personal life, however, is her personal life. I don't see why she should have to share her personal life with you. If she was unable to perform as your therapist on account of what happened, then she could say that. Even then, it would be up to her whether she told you the exact reason or not beyond it being a personal matter.

>Is she entitled to withhold information that she knows will be very upsetting to me even though she knows that I'm sure to find out from someone else if not from her?

In my view, yes - if it doesn't pertain to you and the therapy she provides you; her husband is her business. What goes on in her personal life is not what you are in therapy for.
