I felt like Lara deep down had a naiive belief that her mother was still alive, but she knew this was not likely. Perhaps she realised this after the events of TRL and thats when she started telling herself that her mother couldn't be alive, and telling Zip and Alistair thats how she felt (you can see some sadness in her face in the opening cutscene of TRU when Alistair questions the sanity of what she's doing).

So, I feel like by TRU, Lara could not bury the past without exploring the possibilities of what had happened- she knew that her mother was most likely dead, but her ulterior motive was still to find her for closure- hopefully alive.
