"I still feel very sad about it sometimes. But I've still got Dad. And anyway, it's not as though I'll never see Mum again, is it?"
-- Luna Lovegood (OP38)
Pandora, Luna Lovegood’s mother, liked to experiment, according to her daughter. One of her spells went wrong and she died. Nine-year-old Luna saw it happen.
Rowling mentioned Pandora's death as an example of magical injuries which, unlike mundane injuries which can be cured or healed easily by wizards, can do permanent damage (Pm).
