I was unable to find her death in the California Death Index at Ancestry, but a site reader has informed me, that it exists in the Death Index hosted at vitalsearch.  I can't explain why there should be a difference.  At any rate, the entry now found, identifies her as the daughter of a Cook father and a Tuttle mother.
