It would be helpful if you would include some sort of geographic location, when posting a query...many of us have resources we use to help others, but without some idea of where folks lived it's impossible to know where to look for them.
Have you looked for her in the household of her parents, in the 1930 Federal Census? Have you obtained a death certificate for her, or looked for a newspaper obit from the town where she died? I'm including, below her husband's death date and town....his obit should contain info on his wife.
I looked at the SS death index and found the following... as the birth date is the the same as the one you list, I figure this is he, even though the death year differs from yours. You might check into this;
birth date - Sept 11, 1918
death date Jan 26, 2000
SS # 007 10 3486
# issued in Maine
Death residence.. zip code 04072 Saco, York, Maine
I did a quick google and found Warren's parents and the exact year and place of Ethelyn and Warren's marriage, which should give you some other places to look for her parents...his parents were Warren Eldridge and Helen Martha
WARREN ADDISON ELDRIDGE, b. September 11, 1918, Pride's Corner, Westbrook, ME; m. ETHELYN HARRIET DOUGHTY, August 16, 1941, Westbrook, ME.
