It's haram "forever" before or after son's death. This is according to Quran, Surat An-Nisa' [4:23]:

Prohibited to you [for marriage] are your mothers, your daughters, your sisters, your father's sisters, your mother's sisters, your brother's daughters, your sister's daughters, your [milk] mothers who nursed you, your sisters through nursing, your wives' mothers, and your step-daughters under your guardianship [born] of your wives unto whom you have gone in. But if you have not gone in unto them, there is no sin upon you. And [also prohibited are] the wives of your sons who are from your [own] loins, and that you take [in marriage] two sisters simultaneously, except for what has already occurred. Indeed, Allah is ever Forgiving and Merciful.

http://quran.com/4/23

In this Ayah, The word that is used to describe "the wives of your sons" is: "حلائل" "hala-ilu" which means: the women who are (and who have been) "halal" for your sons i.e. the women who are (and who have been) wives of your sons.

  • When the son dies, it's not his wife anymore. Same with divorce. – Sayyid Jul 10 '15 at 10:43
