Assalaamu `alaykum waRahmatullahi Wabarakatoh

No. So this anger can be controlled. Regardless, this is no excuse to abuse her. Rather, get the other senior members on a local religious body involved in an attempt to resolve this situation.
Recite the following duaa repeatedly.
“Rabbi Inni Maghloobun Fantasir” (Surah Qamar, verse 10)
Also, continue making duaa for both of them.
