I don't really see any reason why you can't give 2 weeks by email. After all, you're leaving. I know it seems to be a parallel between firing and you quitting in some way, but the difference is that if someone is fired and they can't find a job, they're going to start hitting serious financial difficulty. However, the most she's really going to have to deal with is an expense in finding a new employee to fill your spot and too much work for her to do individually in the mean time. Its not really the same emotional effect.
If your going to be going to the new company,just be detailed enough to explain that you would have done it in person, but why you didn't.
You should be able to show that email to all future employers and not be ashamed of it.
If she has fired people by email, just sent it to her.
