    Mrs. Dorothy reported a burglary of her home on 2481 Santana Avenue while she was out of her for her husband funeral service.

    Do not write "Mrs. Dorothy" -- either write Mrs. Elam or Dorothy Elam.

    ... or this:

    Widow reports the burglary of her home at 2481 Santana Avenue while she was out for her husband's funeral.

    I made other corrections and changes ... read carefully.
