To switch it to another number, you need to activate another phone on the number you no longer need (or have Verizon cancel it for the deceased member).  Once that line is no longer active, you can activate the phone on another number - have Verizon CS at a store help you, or follow the steps on verizonwireless.com from the account of the person you do want it to be activated for.
