Widow using maiden name? #bessarabia

My great-aunt Jennie, whose maiden name was Lumer, was 27 and widowed when she came over
in 1907. Either she married someone with the same last name as herself or else she reverted to her
maiden name, because she went by Lumer on the ship and thereafter. I do have a piece of
evidence that her husband's name may have been Fine, but I'm not sure it's reliable.


Is it likely that a young widow would have gone back to using her maiden name, or should I
assume that she married a Lumer?

Any thoughts appreciated.
