Best I've found is, if you know her husbands surname, search for his marriage record. Good chance in finding his wife's maiden name.

Also you can search for marriage or engagement announcements from where they lived. Local or regional papers.

Wedding announcements from her siblings may also mention her maiden name as part of the wedding party not to mention it may also give the maiden name of the sibling, which would be hers.
