Ida Shaffer obit, 1973

I've been searching for Ida Brackin Shaffer who married Westall Phillip Shaffer and moved to California with him.
He died in Escondido, San Diego. I have his obit.
Trouble is, I've found two deaths who could have been his widow, Ida Brackin Shaffer.
One is in California and one is a tombstone entry in De Witt Co., IL.
Ida Shaffer, born about 1884 to Brison and Elizabeth Smith Brackin, died either Dec. 1962 in CA -- or born 20 June 1883, died 27 Aug. 1973, and is buried in De Witt Co. They had no children, her parents were dead before she reached majority, so I'm not sure what an obit would tell, other than perhaps a former husband.

I'm not sure where in DeWitt Co., but perhaps Clinton where other family members once lived.

I hate posting anything this incomplete, but until I learn which is mine, my research is incomplete.
