SS question

Does SS stop immediately when someone dies? The reason I asked this is because my father died last year, and his 4th wife seems shady and my father was getting his SS monthly in his acct,. How do I know she never cancelled it and she is collecting it, and moved to another state and will have it transferred? She isn't old enough to collect - she is only 61. Also she gave away all of his stuff to her son. She has all of a sudden a brand new car, and left her home and pets to be w/her immediate family.

Basically, how does SS know if my father passed away and is it automatically cancelled?
