I don't have much but ideas for you, but maybe the can help. Since Mrs. Ward was widowed when she lived in Ponca City, and her son seems to have been well empolyed as superintendent of the electric generating plant, they would have had the money to ship her body to be buried beside her late husband where ever that may have been. Following Arthur C Ward in the census, he lived in Arkansas City, Kansas, El Reno, Oklahoma, Ponca City and in 1940 Pontotoc County (probably near Ada).
Apparently last known address of Henry, her husband was in Oklahoma city. It would seem probable that one of these places is the likely burial place of the family, I'd look in them. Since I have looked at the cemetery records for Ponca City and found nothing, Hopefully they would be in one of the other counties. If the Cook Co, Illinois death record is correct, The Rose Hill Cemetery referred to may be in Oklahoma City. I don't think that onlone records are complete.
It is possible there is a death certificate on file in Oklahoma, it is possible there is a death certificate, but to get one you have to know in which county the person died.
This is not much help, but maybe it will give you some idea of where to look. If you know where Samantha Jane's husband was buried, that is the first place to look.
