Who can make the decisions regarding the body?

My father passed away on Saturday. His wife is still living and we were told she had all the rights to make the decisions. She doesn’t want to do anything for him. We would like to ensure his body is cremated and the ashes returned to us. Can we force this? She has not been in the picture for a while and only wants to get the money from us “to pay the funeral home”, yet we know she would take it and spend it on drugs and my father would be left at the morgue. What can we do?
