Maria's brother has died / Maria's brother has passed away.


Explanation:
Desde que en el original no se menciona EXACTAMENTE cuándo es que el hermano de María falleció,me parece más correcta la forma HAS died/HAS passed away, que la forma en pasado simple. Usando la forma en pasado simple estaría faltando el adverbio de tiempo que nos indique cuándo ocurrió el mencionado fallecimento[ He passed away 2 days ago.]

Saludos,
