Yes, exactly. Her body wasn't found until many years later (as it came out toward the climax of the leap when Al got that info from Ziggy) so the husband and the kids did assume that she had walked out on them.

I liked this episode. It was suspenseful and there was a lot that was touching about it. They did a much better job dealing with feminism in this episode than they did in the later Women's Lib episode, which I don't like at all. This was a little more subtle and just handled better, in my opinion.
