What would the Romans wife do if the Roman official died?

If a Roman official died, the first thing his wife would do would be to bury him. She would then collect her portion of his will (if any) and go on with her life. The wife of a Roman official had no particular duties or obligations. However if her diseased husband were the priest of Jupiter, the Flamen Dialis, it was a different situation. As the wife of the flamen she had the title flaminica and had certain obligations as well as her husband. If he died, she had to resign her position. These positions of flamen and flamina were prestigious but were very demanding as far as personal conduct went.
