Deputies were called to the 3500 block of SR4 in the area of Salem Heights on reports a body was found.
Deputies say a farmer stopped at the home to plow the driveway discovered the body of a woman lying next to her vehicle.
Investigators believe she fell before entering or after exiting her vehicle late Wednesday or early Thursday and may have died from hypothermia as a result of exposure to the cold.
Foul play is not suspected.
Sheriff John Boyd said it appears to be a tragic accident and asks residents to check in on their elderly relatives and neighbors often, especially during severe weather events.
