Husband's name linked to my email address

Husband's name linked to my email address

When composing a message to myself (I do this sometimes for reminders/etc), my email address does not show up under my name.  Instead I need to enter my email address manually, which then auto-fills my husband's name.  Also, the icon which is supposed to be my initial is his instead.  I've tried updating both of our info in my contact list, deleting the auto-fill feature for both of us, updating my account name, and clearing my cache.  I've noticed other people on this forum have had the same problem and it has been resolved.

How do you fix this? My husband died and his name shows as the sender from both of my email addresses, even though I, too, tried to change it in settings several times. I’ve remarried!!! This sucks!!!
