Occupation on ship Manifest

My wife's grandmother came to America in 1920
It states that she is single but her occupation is 'H.wife'

What does this mean? Was she married, was a housewife and is no longer married?

I'm not English mother tongue, but I think she could be a housewife (a woman who did not have a proper occupation, but just stayed at home working at home care) even without being literally a "wife"!
