previous case not closed

I found out that my previous I-864 is still in force. Looks like it is, anyway.

The story: I was married to a UK national and we did AOS for him, and his I-485 was approved in 2017 and he got a conditional green card.

The marriage was a good one but my husband died due to a massive stroke in August 2017.

It took me several months to realize I needed to notify USCIS of the death of a green card holder.

I did just that through INFOPASS in April of this year. Returned his green card, asked to close the case and withdraw my I-864.

They promised to do that, took the green card and copied the death certificate for the file.

So I assumed everything was fine, and moved on.

Boy, was I wrong. Yesterday I received a 120 Day Reminder in the mail for the deceased's name (Re: Removal of Conditions).

I checked his case online. It still has the old message dated 19 months ago that the green card been mailed out.

The problem is I recently got re-married, and filed for CR1/2 for my new husband and step-son, and received NOA1 for each petition.

In my new I-130 I mentioned my previous I-130 for the deceased but wrote "approved/withdrawn".

Now, what do I do? Evidently, I assumed too much and provided a false information. 

How do I get the deceased case closed?
