Jem and Scout were disappointed about Mrs. Radley's death, as shown in this passage:

Jem and I decided that Boo had got her at last, but when Atticus returned from the Radley house he said she died of natural causes, much to our disappointment.



The children were hoping that Boo Radley had harmed her, as they suspected that he would.  The children were also hoping to see Boo Radley but, because his brother took over his care, they did not see him after Mrs. Radley passed away.
