      You also run into the problem that many states restrict death
      certificates for a certain number of years after death for privacy
      reasons. If she did live into her 80s or 90s, her death certificate
      might still be restricted.

      I believe you mentioned you found someone in the SSDI you thought
      might be her husband? If so, see if you can obtain his death notice
      from the local paper. It will, most likely, mention his wife as
      either surviving or deceased and, that should narrow down the search
      range a little.
