Confusion in using "due to"?

I usually meet "due to" usage in a document or conversation, but in different ways. I did some research and found out that "due to" is adjectival.Thus, the correct sentence should be:> The cancellation was due to rainInstead of:> It was cancelled due to rainBut when I looked it up in Longman Dictionary, I found:> She has been absent from work due to illnessCan anybody tell me why the above sentence is correct?

Besides English grammar, I know how and why it got that way.
