The qualifications for claiming Qualifying Widow(er) and Head of Household are in the 1040 instructions.

Everyone should have a Pub 17,  at the very least,  at their fingertips, IRS gives it away for free, and it has so many answers!

I believe the correct terminology is widow.  Does the widow have any kids to make her the head of something, like a household?  If not, in 2020 sounds like she is a single widow.
