How do we die online?

I typed in the wrong email address while logging onto Netflix this morning, and I was horrified to see this message:

Welcome back Mary Jane!

Restarting your Netflix membership is simple.

Just pick a plan and verify your information. The movies will be on their way to you shortly!

That Mary Jane is my mother, who died last year. I had been running her subscription, and I canceled it. So naturally, she makes her way into the list of former subscribers (and future prospects). Will she be on the same list in 50 years? In 100? Will I?
