What happened to Susannah after her husband, Thomas Rawling, died?

+1 vote
Susannah Cook married Thomas Rawling 25 Aug 1864, Filey, Yorkshire.  He was a shipwright working in London.  I infer that he died 14 May 1866, 20 Hind Street, Poplar, London.  The informat of his death was Mary Ann Swift, wife of William S Swift.  Both Mary Ann and William were born in Yorkshire.  Thomas had an older sister named Mary Ann, who could have married William Swift.  After 1866 I cannot find Susannah in census records.  I do not know if she died or remarried.  I can provide more background on the parents of Susannah and Thomas if helpful to someone else.  Thanks.

I searched for her under Susannah Renshaw - is this the right age for her in 1871?

It looks as if John died - there is a death for a John Renshaw in Islington in the 2nd quarter of 1871 - possibly registration of the death overlapped with the census.
