You can view the changelog on the profile and see the contributor who marked your wife - and you - as deceased.
You can ask that the profiles be changed to living. Then you will be unable to see the profiles, as they will be in the private space of the person who created the profiles.

Thank you for posting your question in the Community regarding the deceased status of your wife's record in Family Tree.
We have viewed the record PID # GF9Y-S6F, and can see the deceased status was added by another user/contributor of Family Tree on July 30, 2022.
We have a process for changing a deceased record to living. We will attach a link to an article from our Help Center giving you instructions for doing that.
Since you are not the creator or contributor of this record, you will need to follow the 2nd set of instructions from the article, which are:
If you are not the only contributor:
- Navigate to the person page of the individual who is living.
- Click Details
- In the Vitals section, next to the listed death date, select Edit.
- In the box that appears, click the circle labeled Living
- Enter how you know the person is still alive.
- Click Save
- Enter an explanation for the system administrator to review your request. Please provide this information:
- Your relationship to the individual needing attention
- How you know that the person is alive
- If possible, the living person's current physical address
- Click Submit.
A request now goes to FamilySearch Support. A system administrator reviews your request and takes appropriate actions.
We are sorry for the inconvenience this error has created.
Clain Reed Spencer you should look at the changes. All except one was made by the same person. And, it appears you failed to notice that you, too, are deceased. Your name is slightly re-arranged (as if someone didn't know your first name from your last), but I would send some messages and mark both living myself if I were you.0
@Clain Reed Spencer it looks like a Scooby Doo "Ruh Roh" occurrence, and @CJTobler has outlined the process above. It can take 2-4 weeks before "living" status is achieved, depending on support's workload.0
I ran across a person listed as deceased (he was 100 at the time). I verified with his sister that he was, indeed, still alive. Then I marked him living, and his record disappeared. That simple. Why do you say it takes 2-4 weeks?0
not 2-4 weeks, 24-48 hours (longer if over weekend). I've came across a few of my cousins listed as deceased in error and all I had to do was to find sites like Facebook, Linkind, etc and show the link showing the persons very much alive and well.1
@W D Samuelsen contact me please that's great to hear that the wait has improved since my last encounter in June 2022. Thanks for the note!0
