What you should do is obtain some additional original certified death certificates. Once you get those you should write a letter to each credit card company your father owe and explain that he has passed away and include a copy of the death certificate. That should end the issue as long as your mother has not continued to use the card after his death. Make sure she does not use any of those cards she was only an authorized user of.
Please update me on your progress by posting updates here in the comments section of your question. I’m very interested in how this works out for you.
