After Mathias Cipra died, Mary is listed as living on Ovington St., Cleveland:

From the Cleveland City Directories, at
1888 Cipra Maria, wid Matej 19 Ovington
1889 Cipra Marie, wid Michael 18 Ovington
1890 Cipra Mary, wid Matej 18 Ovington

After Vaclav died, Mary was still living on Ovington. The naming of streets in Cleveland was all re-arranged in 1905, and so the numbering on Ovington must have changed. This is her 1910 and 1920 Census information:

A transcriiption of her tombstone was found at the Charles Jarolimek database, at rootsweb. The maintainer of that database states:
"At Calvary Cemetery, her tomb stone reads: Vaclav Cipra 1857-1907; under his name is Jani Palecek 1897-1906 (granddaughter); across from Vaclav's name is Joseph F. Cipra 1875-1922 (son); under Joseph's name is Marie Q. Cipra 1853-1924; May They Rest in Peace."

Could the "Q" really be a crown with a cross inset into it? This design looks like the letter "Q".
