What happened to Job's wife?

In Job story, at the end every things going well. But what about Job's wife?

She cursed the God "Then said his wife unto him, Dost thou still retain thine integrity? curse God, and die." Cursing the G-d in those days were very serious sin. It is mention in the end that Job prayed for his friends(42:10) But Job didn't prayed his wife. Job  got seven sons and three daughters.(42:13) from the same wife. But what about Job's wife who curse G-d?  (Please pardon my English grammar). 

Job 2:9

ESV - 9 Then his wife said to him, "Do you still hold fast your integrity? Curse God and die.

Simply put, we aren't told. The story is really about Job. Anything you may read about his wife, her motives, and what happened to her is nothing but complete speculation. Scripture doesn't tell us, so we therefore cannot know.
