They might.
It depends on a few factors.
The visa you are currently on etc.

You might need to discus with a migration agent to get it right.

I'm sorry for your loss.

Generally, if you can provide evidence that your relationship was still genuine at the time of his death and would have been ongoing, they'd still grant your PR visa. But it may be worthwhile to arrange a consultation with a migration agent to see if there is anything you need to address in your application.

There are several good migration agents on this forum - look for usernames Jeremy Hooper, WRussell, CCMS and Mark Northam.

I am deeply sorry for your husband's passing
I know in the case of a partner passing whilst the provisional visa is still processing, you can withdraw the application and get a full refund. In this case as the application has technically been processed you couldn't get a refund, but I would have no doubts that they would grant you PR if you can prove genuine relationship. If you had/are having a big part in organising his funeral or other celebrations, I'd include that as evidence.

Anyway, my main point is that if the provisional visa is still processing and a partner dies, the money is refunded. If PR is given and a partner dies, you keep PR. So I am sure it isn't the case that when PR is processing but after the provisional visa is given, that in the case of your partner's death you lose residency AND money. That would just be unfair and cruel.

^^^^THIS! Follow this advice and contact a good registered migration agent immediately and let them guide you accordingly. It is likely that the outcome of your visa relies heavily on the information you provide DIBP now, so don't contact them without professional advice.
