Well, that certainly looks like her - the probate with the Oakey name on, and the fact that Esther Rist connects that to the Marsh family in the 1901 census, would seem to seal it.

Looks as though my previous inability to find them has been down to them not being able to stick to one form of the name Elizabeth, and Emily being (very) conservative with her age - she only ages 18 years or so in the 40 years of censuses!

Not 100pc on death of Elizabeth, but marriage?

Yes, the age of that death looks slightly out. I've been looking for any sign of the marriage of Betsy Oakey to William Marsh and haven't come up with anything yet. Maybe since they'd gone to a different part of the country they didn't feel the need to bother.
