Sorry to nitpick, but I'm guessing you meant without a mask? As in the lady in front of your wife wasn't wearing a mask yet didn't hear jack from the return line lady?

Reported her to the manager.

She uses expletives toward you and your wife, and you reported her. not to sound nasty, but I would've done the same. And if I were a manager, I wouldn't want my employees using expletives toward customers.

You got it right. I wasn't wearing a mask and neither was the person in front of us. It may sound weird but in my area of NorCal, no one has ever really gone too nuts with masking regs or enforcement. The police and sheriffs have also said over and over they won't enforce. So I don't bother.

And neither do I in NE Ohio.  Around here the mask nazis have always encountered resistance.  Local law enforcement has refused to enforce mask mandates.  Back during the first big surge of covid cases the local populace was generally respectful of indoor mask rules (i.e. your house, your rules).  I did occasionally see store managers asking people to put on a mask or leave the store.  But once the "if you are vaxed you don't need a mask" signs went up, almost no one wears a mask anymore.  Even during this new surge of "delta variant" cases few people seem to be worried.  I know that I brazenly went about wherever I pleased without a mask and eventually caught the 'rona bug last month.  I got over it.  I know people who died from it.  People in my community now wear a mask as a personal choice - not because they were ordered to. 

We still experience local "mask conflict" type incidents like the one you describe.  I observe that these incidents involve people traveling into my community from nearby urban areas, like Cleveland, where the mask nazis still have a hold over the hearts and minds of the people.  Just recently a Walmart customer started yelling at everyone because she observed that no one was wearing a mask in the store (imagine her surprise).  She probably felt threatened.  She was escorted out of the store by local police.

No matter what the situation is , I agree with that things can be said in a charitable way with respect and professionally.

She obviously got herself fired.

That doesn't mean we have to excuse and not call out bad behavior.

There is no need to confess. She harassed you and your wife and should have known the consequences of her actions.
"After the Second Vatican Council, the impression arose that the Pope really could do anything in liturgical matters, especially if he were acting on the mandate of an Ecumenical Council. Eventually, the idea of the givenness of the liturgy, the fact that one cannot do with it what one will, faded from the public consciousness of the West. In fact, the First Vatican Council had in no way defined the Pope as an absolute monarch. On the contrary, it presented him as the guarantor of obedience to the revealed Word. The Pope's authority is bound to the Tradition of faith..."

—Cardinal Joseph Ratzinger, The Spirit of the Liturgy
