If you haven't already done so, I suggest placing an inquiry with the local genealogy group in Chicago. I was looking for information on my grandmother who was never issued a death certificate (she died around 1905), and the local genealogy group in that particular county was quite helpful. As they are usually volunteers, it may take a little while to get back to you, but generally speaking they love to help people find their ancestors.
You might try searching for the record on Cook County Genealogy. Once you register, you can search for death records that are over 20 years old. To view the actual record, however, you need to pay $17. Generally place of burial is indicated on the death certificate.
