Her destructiveness is apparent through the aggression she causes in Curley, as though it is all her fault.
Crooks wants to kick her out, but she then tells him how she can have him lynched in a second. She has a personality, and that personality consists of her authority over her husbands, her own ideals on religion, and she uses her tale to back this all up. She went off on a racist tangent when Crooks asked for privacy from his room because he wants no trouble with Curley. He used friendship, and loneliness to contort the initial impression of Curleys wife. Curley's wife is seen as a cheap possession, a toy that belongs to Curley. Steinbeck created a character, that is so compelling and admirable from a character that is so repulsive in the start of the novel. He also refers to her by using an offensive and disrespectful term.

Ultimately, despite all of the revelations about Curley's wife's personality in the final scene, her death is caused by her never ending need for attention in that once Lennie reveals that he likes to pet soft things she offers up her hair, despite him telling her that many things he pet end up dead, which is foreshadowing Curley's wife's fate. The fact that Steinbeck writes the characters as never once mentioning her real name prevents the likeliness of her having a personal relationship with anyone on the ranch, including her husband.

But I have one question, you have stated that realizations were drawn that she's not floozy from her last scenes, however some other people had said that the last scene showed that she only is able to restore her innocence through death.
