Suppose she does leave. Would you still be friendly enough with her to chat and catch up with her outside of work? Is it public knowledge she might be leaving soon (or is she being forced out)?

If you are friends, you might want to invite her anyway, and explain that even if you are not working together anymore, you’d still like her to come….but if she couldn’t make it, you’d understand.

Etiquette doesn’t say that anyone HAS to be invited.  I wouldn’t invite my boss unless it was someone I liked, and wanted to spend time with outside of work.

I would not invite any level of management unless they are legitimately your friend, someone you hang out with after work and on weekends and generally have a very close relationship with.
