If homeowner dies does homeowner insurance cover it?
Homeowners insurance covers the house itself should it be damaged. Many of the policies include liability insurance so that if anyone is injured there you have protection. There are some types of mortgage insurance that cover the remaining mortgage should the owner die. But, if the lender does not require it due to a low down payment, one would have to specifically buy that.

Does homeowners insurance become null and void when the homeowner dies Would it cover loss of use for the grown children of homeowner?
The homeowners insurance would not become null and void just due to the death of the named insured. I would need more information to determine the second part of the question.… The grown children would not be eligible for payment for loss of use just because of the death. If they are household members they are covered just like the named insured if the loss of use was due to a covered cause of loss. If no one else lives in the home the coverage would cease after it has been vacant for 90 days.
