I would think about the last name of Wilhelmine ARNHOLD, her maiden name 
should be read as WALDAN,
in both mentioned records I see an "a" instead of the "o".

A little bit surprising the fact, that the record about the death of 
Gottlieb ARNHOLD on 21th / 23rd of February 1890 says that his wife 
Wilhelmine is dead
("... husband of the deceased Wilhelmine born Waldan")
while the record about the death of Wilhelmine ARNHOLD the next year on 
3rd / 5th of April 1891 says "widowed"

I assume this is because all the records were written later and not in time.
