Of what or of whom is Aunt Jennifer terrified with in the third stanza?

Aunt Jennifer is, probably, terrified of the oppression of her chauvinist husband.  She lives her life under constant pressure of duties and responsibilities of a married lady. The image of the wedding ring, even after her death, suggests that there is no escape whatsoever from the conventions of her marriage and that she had to succumb to them.
