Looking at the deceased wife’s face
Q: Does a husband become ‘ghair mahram’ when his wife dies and cannot see her face?
A: After the demise of the wife, the husband is allowed to look at the face of his wife. However he is not allowed to touch her body.
And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
و يمنع زوجها من غسلها و مسها لا من النظر اليها على الاصح. و قالت الائمة الثلاثة يجوز. (الدر المختار)
