The WA Death Index:
Pearl I Easterday, died 20 June 1968 in Clarkston, no Age, Estimated Birth Year, Residence or SSN identified. The lack of data is unusual.
The Social Security Death Index:
Pearl Easterday, born 23 May 1882, died June 1969, SSN 519-03-2684 issued in Idaho before 1951, "last residence" Clarkston, Asotin Co, WA.
The "last residence" on the SSDI is NOT necessarily where a person actually lived. The Social Security Administration calls it simply the "home of record." It is not necessarily where any benefit was paid to the person, survivor, or the lumpsum death benefit (in 1972 was paid to anyone paying burial expenses, family member, funeral home, city/county, attorney). It is sometimes the location where the notification of death was sent to the SSA, sometimes where the lump sum death benefit was sent.
A family tree owned by "dnorman1943" identifies Pearl Thompson, born May 1882 in Missouri, dauther of John R. Thompson and Mary Catherine Straley. Among the children is Fred L. Thompson, born May 1897 in Morris Twp, Sullivan Co, MO. No marriage noted for Pearl.
--The 1900 Census verifies the family and birth month and year of both.
It appears possible they are the same. BUT, I always demand PROOF in crime and genealogy. The obituary "might" identify the name of parents and place of birth. The Death Certificate "might" if the informant (possibly John) knew the names of her parents and place of birth.
The Best source would be Pearl herself. When she applied for her Social Security Number, she completed a form SS-5. It would have her place of birth and names of parents.

A computer extract would be cheaper and would show the same information. But, if she is related and you want her handwriting, the exact image copy might be what you'd like for records.
