Did Mary (Lazarus’ sister) also know about that? Matthew 26:6-13 and Mark 14:3-9 are most probably referring to her as John 12:8. In John 11:25-27, Christ ordered Lazarus to come forth from the dead and gave him life again, confirming His divinity. Was Mary declaring His divinity and His resurrection by anointing His body before death?

As mentioned in the passages you provided, Mary (the sister of Lazarus) paid tribute to the Lord before His death with costly fragrant oil as she felt indebted to Him, not knowing how to befittingly honor Him, except with the best that she has. She knew that the Jews were plotting against Him, but was convinced that their evil plots would be fruitless and death would have no power over Christ.
