1891 - looks like Sophia in Wingham, East Huron.  She says the birth place of both her parents was Prussia.

Sophia is with her granddaughter here.

If this is your Isaac - died in BC in 1910 - perhaps you could contact the Archives to get a death certificate

Sophia....

On the 1861 census, Sophia is down as married in the column that only gives married or single as choices. Two columns over, there is a tick for her in the widows column (a bit blotchy but shows).
