Well I googled, and the Knot says not to include the parent because the invite mentions the hosts only… but lots of people commented disagreeing.  The comments and a few other websites I visited said to put

“daughter of Mrs. BrideAtSea’s Mom and the late Mr. BrideAtSea’s dad”

I wouldn’t mention “in memory of” you could do something to mention him like that at the ceremony or reception.

Sorry for your loss, By The Way <3

@BrideAtSea:  This does not sound wierd at all. It is the proper and respectful way for a widow to issue an invitation on behalf of both herself and her deceased husband.
