I'm wondering if anyone could help me find a death for an ancestor?

Eleanor Bertha Tandy is born 1867, in Hawkesbury, Gloucestershire, England.

She comes to the United States through New York in 1889, on the ship Adriatic. A generation previously, her uncle James Tandy had also come to the US, living in Flint, Genesee, Michigan, which is where Eleanor winds up. In 1905 she marries a David Goodall in Flint. Both claim to be single although familysearch shows a previous marriage for David to a Jessie Rathbun in 1897 in Michigan.

I have found Eleanor, now using the name of Bertha, and David together in the 1910 US census, in Flint, as Goodale. There are a couple of possibles for David in later censuses, but no sign of Eleanor/Bertha.

I'm afraid I've no idea whether she died in America, back in England or anywhere else in the world, but America seems a reasonable place to start.

Thank you
Lisa

I've just found a widowed Bertha in the 1940 census, head of family, together with Dorothy Coles and Walter Coles, presume this is daughter Dorothy and her husband.

I may possibly have found her death, on FS, although age is a bit off, and birthplace wrong - https://www.familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:KFSV-QD7

I think that must be her well done. 

Spouse is down as David Goodall which fits.
