Default Death of sponsor during spouse visa process

Assuming my wife and I get through the initial screening OK and move to the UK, I'm wondering what would happen to her application for permanent residency in England if I drop dead after say a year back there. I'm British, she's American. Would she be able to continue living there and going through the application process, or would she have to leave the country?
