The general rule is that when your petitioner dies, your petition is dead too. When the petitioner dies, the beneficiary that has been waiting does not get an immigrant visa. In 2009 Congress changed the law and provided some exceptions to this strict general rule. Therefore, you may still be able to immigrate (get a Green Card) even if your petitioner has passed away.
