It seems odd that her husband's name was listed as her surname. I don't know if she was married Lester before Wilbur or not.
I didn't find anything about Susan's death on-line. Oregon didn't require vital records until 1903 on a state level.
You can contact the Gilliam County Clerk, 221 South Oregon Street, Condon, OR 97823, 541-384-2311.
Then I'd contact the Gilliam County Historical Society, rootsweb.com/~orgillia/HistoricalSociety.htm . They might have info about her death date and an obituary.
