commenced by a widow within two years after the death of her husband, if
the husband dies on or after April 6, 1954.

2. If the husband died before April 6, 1954, an action for dower must
be commenced by his widow within two years from April 6, 1954. If the
widow had, on April 6, 1954, less than two years under existing law in

of action barred on April 6, 1954.
