I think it would depend on her feelings towards her deceased husband. If she still loves and misses him, then I think Mrs. would be most appropriate, but if she’s one of those “I’m glad he’s gone” types, then Ms. would probably work better. Failing any further information, I think Ms. would be the most appropriate.

(Edited post) Sorry I’m deleting what I previously wrote because it seems to be wrong. In any case, “Ms” is safe.

Just call her and ask her. That’s the best way.
