She might be in some kind of Hospital?

Quite often, people in institutions were transcribed with just their initials.

There is always the possibility that she left her husband and pretended to be single.

In 1911 Edward is still listed as married and there is a gap on the form where his wife would have been listed. Maybe she was just away on the day of the census.
