Women Dies After Eating Poisonous Mushrooms

Unfortunately, a women near where I live, died the other day from eating poisonous mushrooms. I would NEVER trust myself to pick mushrooms out in the wild, but I was curious if there were others who do pick and eat wild mushrooms? How do you know you are picking edible ones? Like snakes, aren't there those that look alike, one is poisonous, the other isn't?
