Well if you remember when Jinta and Anaru were running through the forest, I don't remember the episode, but Anaru slipped and almost fell down into that river but Jinta caught her keeping her from falling off the ledge.
He said "you're just like Menma.."
And her slipper floating means she was in the water somehow.
They didn't say it directly to how she died but she slipped just like Anaru did; and you know that from what Jinta said to Anaru, and fell off the little cliff ledge that was there and went into the river. Thus forth leading to her demise ;_;
