The basic answer to your question is that when a woman marries, her name changes to that of her husband. So if she is widowed and remarries, she will remarry under her first husband's surname.

It would be very, very, very unusual for a widow to revert to her maiden name. Are you sure the lady in question was actually married before? Does the marriage certificate give her as a widow, but with her surname matching that of her father?
