Mary mother of Jesus was not among the pious women at the tomb

The reason is simple: Mary and family had committed sin against the Spirit, since they thought that Jesus was crazy.

Hence Paul's words are realized:

1 Corinthians 1:27
But God chose the foolish things of the world to shame the wise; God chose the weak things of the world to shame the strong

Hence the Mary found in the tomb is mother of James the Minor. The other James, the son of Zebedee, wanted to be the greatest among the apostles.
Nihil enim in speciem fallacius est quam prava religio. -Liv. xxxix. 16.
