In the book, Katniss remembers her scolding Peeta out for burning the bread to give to Katniss. Katniss tries to avoid her at all costs, as she knows that she is very harsh. When Peeta is reaped, she is not supportive of his son. Later into the book when Peeta is talking to Katniss, he tells her that his mother said, "Maybe District 12 will have a victor this year. She's a fighter, that one", insinuating that she didn't think Peeta would come home, but that Katniss had a good shot.
75th Hunger Games
When Peeta is picked for the Games, she has less faith in him, since he has to deal with fighting other victors from previous Games.

She was one of the thousands of casualties during this bombing, as she died with some of her family. She was killed instantly.
