I agree that a check-up at the vet would be a good idea if she hasn't had one recently. Even if she appears to be in good health, there may be some stuff going on internally that you can't see. A senior blood panel and a urinalysis is the best place to start. At 16, there are a number of age-related illnesses that can result in inappropriate urination (kidney disease, diabetes, hyperthyroid, etc.).

If that all checks out, then it's certainly possible that the peeing could be stress related. Make sure you're cleaning every where she goes with a good enzymatic spray (Zero Odor Pet, Urine Off, or Nature's Miracle, for example). A Feliway diffuser or 2 could help calm her, but maybe just lots of attention and some one-on-one play therapy, plus time and patience, can also help.
