Fit and comfort being equal, I'd say go with the Dew FS.

Aside from me liking Kona as a brand/company, the Dew FS has a better (meaning stronger/lighter) aluminum alloy for the frame, components that appear to be roughly equivalent to the Trek across the board, and hydraulic disc brakes. From the sounds of things, she doesn't actually need disc brakes, hydraulic or otherwise, but those hydraulics are awfully nice in terms of feel and control.

Plus, the Kona is more than $100 cheaper than the Trek. More bike, less money.
