Question help me please to restore this picture

I am new to restoring photos. I took an on-line HP class and learned a lot, but can not seem to figure out how to clone one area to another.
My mother-in-law passes away last week at the age of 89 and the family would like me to "fix" a photo of her as a young women. It seems to have watermarks or spots of some kind all over it. I have tried using the "fix flaw" tool but in some areas I really need better coverage.
Any assist would be greatly appriciated.
I have HP Photo essentials, Printmaster 15, and Photoshop 11.0 programs.

PS as suggested I have attached the image

Welcome to RP! Sorry to hear about your Mother-In-Law. Depending on the image and the stains, some techniques and tools may be more effective than others. I suggest that you attach the image or a part of the image which is representative of the damage so that you can receive the most useful suggestions.
Regards, Murray

It would also help if you posted the Photoshop version you are using. If it is a fairly recent verson you could likely use the patch tool to clone in large areas.
