Why did it die?

If it was old age (several years) then just get a new fish. The tank is healthy and established now, there is no need to clean it out and destroy the natural nitrogen cycle etc that is established in there.

If it died of some contagious disease, it may be better to strip the tank down, wash everything with diluted bleach and start again.

If it died for "no good reason", check that the tank is set up correctly for a betta. (size, water temp, filtering, water changes etc) before getting a new fish.
