The home will pass under the laws of Intestate succession. This is the law that states who receives the property of a person who dies without a Will. In most states, the heirs would be: Spouse and/or spouse and children, if no spouse then child, if none, then brothers and sisters, then parents, etc. This assumes owns the house with no other person and no agreement has modified who is to receive the house. If there are deceased children that had children of their own, they would receive their parents share in most states.
