Not claiming that Hume is the last word on this subject (nor is anyone else), but he does agree with her. Also, in my personal experience, everyone I know who believes in the immortality of the soul also believes in revealed religion. Every atheist I know believes that the sould dies with the body. This would also support her point.

Well, Hume doesn't believe Metaphysics is possible, and was an atheist, so that is no surprise.

I know many people who do not believe in any revealed religion, but are not atheists.  They think they will live on in some fashion after death.  This is normal.  Atheists are a small part of the population, always have been, always will be.  Even in the most secularized countries of Europe, belief in reincarnation is on the rapid increase.  When people are divorced from revealed religion, they don't stop believing in spiritual things, they just become pagans like our ancestors.  Who, like their secularized descendants, believe in life after death.
