Do airlines offer bereavement fares/discounts?

Yes. In some cases airlines will offer bereavement fares or, compassionate fares, which are offered to family members traveling for a death in the family, or imminent death. Bereavement fares are only offered over the phone or in person at the airline’s ticket counters. Documentation may be required by the airline. They might ask to see a copy of a death certificate before the purchase.
