How to delete a Facebook account of a loved one who has died

During my Social Media session, a participant asked me how to delete a Facebook account of an aunt who had passed away.

Memorial Page
I mentioned what some people do instead of deleting the account.
They make the page a memorial to that person where people can add memories whenever they want, especially on their birthdays or anniversary of the death.

You don't need to know the password because anyone can add a post to someone else's Facebook page by directing it to them.
It is easier if you have the password to their account so that you can change the name of the account and post an official description. Pin this description to the top so that it remains at the top as people add posts.

Below a link to a Facebook page which answers this question and has links to the forms that need to fill out to delete the account.
