Death in office
A death in office is the death of a person who was incumbent of an office-position until the time of death.
The death of most popes have been deaths in office, since they have usually held their papacy for the rest of their lives.
Most office positions require that the person is constantly competent in performing the associated duties, resulting in that deaths in office are usually premature deaths.
