IS THIS "OBIT" A LOOK-UP POSSIBILITY???

IS THIS "OBIT" A LOOK-UP POSSIBILITY???

Surnames: Finnegan
I have been searching for years for the death and burial of a great aunt by marriage, Margaret (Howe) Finnegan, widow of George. He was a Catholic who died in the 1920's and was buried in Jersey City but she was non-Catholic and not, therefore, buried with him. They had two sons, Felix George and Peter. After George's death, she lived with friends, the Martinitz family, and moved from Manhattan to south NJ with them and died there.
I just found on the 1940 Census that Margaret was 91 and living in Long Branch with Elizabeth and Frank Martinitz on West End Ave. I would assume she couldn't have lived much longer but am at a loss as to how to pin this down unless local cemeteries can tell me if she was interred without my knowing a year of death.
Finnegan could have been spelled Finni/Fine/Fini. Margaret was born in NY.
Is such a look-up feasible?
Thank you!
