Because you already know when and where she died ...
you might want to contact the local genealogy society
They might have an index of obits from the local newspapers
The might have other reference books to answer your other questions.

I'm not sure if this is the right Mary Kaiser
But is sure seems strange that another
Mary Kaiser from Wayne County
with parents named Frank and Martha
is getting married to some other guy

It might be interesting to get a copy of his obit from the
Wayne County Genealogical Society
P.O. Box 530063
Livonia, Michigan

I know this stuff does not answer your questions
about Mary and her husband Mr. LeBlanc.

The 1940 Federal Census will be released soon.
Maybe there will be more info regarding this family

I hope this information will be helpful to your research.
