I believe this is probably your grandmother. She was the right age,living in the right city, and the Social Security Death Index records her middle initial as H. The middle initial for women in the SSDI usually represents their maiden name not their middle name. I would, of course, suggest that you order a copy of her death certificate, your grandparents marriage certificate, or her social security records for confirmation.
