Try Walworth County Court House (often County Clerk or Clerk of Courts) in Elkhorn, WI for death record. From there - see who was the funeral home. Funeral home, if still in existance, may have obit in their records. Might be probate info - this would have relatives, their addresses, and relationship.

Contact the cemetery itself - they often also have records beyond the information on the headstone.

Looks like Marion was b. in Chicago - so look there for marriage. Esther maiden name CARLSEN. (Note she is Swedish - so spelling is probably CARLSON)
