I selected these for a bit of a response.

In Peter Pan, the action happens away from home--away from Mrs. Darling.

Mrs. Dear is not Lady's mother.

Mrs. Jumbo is in jail.

The humans in Toy Story are not really even supporting characters. Woody and Buzz don't have mothers.

In each of these, the mother is pretty much out of the picture. Killing her would be gratuitious.
