As you say, her birth certificate would be the most reliable info, but that is not likely available, given the year.
Other records which can help provide circumstantial evidence would be:
-Her death certificate - you can order it from the state of Washington, but if her grandson was the closest survivor, he may have not known her parents names
-The death certificates of her children may list her maiden name.
-Obituaries for her parents or the Alvords. You can browse the California death index for 1905-1939 at familysearch
Here is the page for the Alvord's
Henry Alvord died on January 25, 1918
Marcia Alvord died on April 4, 1919
There may not be obits in the LA paper, but you may get lucky.
