    Yes. Petitioner death kills the petition. There are two ways for reinstatement: 1) 204(l) reinstatement, which requires at least one of the beneficiaries must have been residing in the US when the petitioner died, and continued to reside in the US; or 2) humanitarian reinstatement, which requires that the petition was already approved when the petitioner died (which it doesn't sound like is true from your description), and the case has strong factors to favor a discretionary grant of humanitarian benefit.

    This is my personal opinion and is not to be construed as legal advice.
