Could This Be Marie Olsen?

A gravestone with the name Marie Olsen and dates of birth and death (1879-1932) was recently found in St. Paul Minnesota. I read this story on Geneanet and CBSMinnesota and decided to have a quick hunt for Marie.

I found a possible candidate in Ancestry.com Minnesota Death Index, 1908-2002

Name: Mrs. Marie Andrew Olsen
Death Date: 21 Nov 1932
 Death County:  Ramsey

It's proving difficult to narrow down all the Marie Olsen results in Ancestry.com databases but I hope someone somewhere will know who Marie Olsen is and where her tombstone belongs.

Using the Minnesota Death Certificate search at www.mnhs.org I found there are two possibilities.
1. Mary H. Olsen
Death Date: 2 Dec 1932
Death Place: Ramsey County
Certificate #: 1932-MN-025429

2. Mrs. Marie Andrew Olsen
Death Date: 21 Nov 1932
Death Place: Ramsey County
Certificate #: 1932-MN-025329

Now if someone were to go to the microfilm of these death certificates at the Minnesota Historical Society in St. Paul and look up these two certificates the mystery might be solved.
