    Can the unexpected death of one’s sponsor jeopardize one’s chances for citizenship?

    My friend's spouse had unexpectedly passed away in the last week and her Canadian citizenship interview is scheduled 3 weeks from now. Obviously this interview was scheduled prior to his passing and, her concern is that she had applied for citizenship based on her marriage to a Canadian citizen. Will she still be eligible for citizenship despite her spouse's passing? She had been in the country for 5 years and they were married for 4 of those years.
