You may have the below, the only "problem" is your concern over the "last residence," which could be her daughters versus hers. Her husband Ray died in 1955...per records. So, she "could" have remarried and the SSDI records reflected her previous married name. OR, she could have died in Albuquerque...but that does not mean that she was living there. So many possibilities due to problems in our record systems:

The Social Security Death Index:
Florence I. Horsfall, born 13 oct 1899, died 2 July 2003, "last residence" Albuquerque, NM.
--The "last residence" on the SSDI is NOT necessarily where a person actually
lived or died. The Social Security Administration calls it simply the "home
of record." It is not necessarily where any benefit was paid to the person,
survivor, or the lumpsum death benefit (in 1972 was paid to anyone paying
burial expenses, family member, funeral home, city/county, attorney). It is
sometimes the location where the notification of death was sent to the SSA,
sometimes where the lump sum death benefit was sent.

The Bernalillo County recorder had no documents in her name, indicating she did not own property, record any documents, power-of-attorney, estates, etc. There is a recorded marriage of a Sarah Beth Horsfall to a Carl Finely in 2007.

Posted family trees identify her as born as Florence Noonan. She married Raymond Horsfall on 8 May 1918 and lived in Dubuque Co, IA to at least 1960. Ray died in 1955. She had a daughter "private" and a son Robert Ray Horsfall, died 19 Nov 1944 in the Netherlands. (Betting a Battle of the Bulge war casualty...I've been doing a number of these and those in the Netherlands "adopting" cemetery stones and the hero's).

I did a number of other searches, without success.

Your answer might be in finding her daughter.
