Hello, thank you for the question. Name changes can be complicated. What province are you in?
Sorry, I don't do phone calls. It doesn't help you. By writing, we're both clear on what's been communicated and you can refer to it later at any time.
The death of a spouse is certainly a triggering event for a name change. You should have no problem changing your name.
Go to this government publication and look at pages 6-7which give some basic information on how to go about it. http://www.crcvc.ca/docs/How%20do%20I%20change%20my%20name.pdf
In some provinces, changing a name needs the permission of the authorities. It appears that in Saskatchewan, the death of a spouse will allow you to change the name without any serious difficulty.
