You want to be truthful yet delicate here-
I would tell her something "she is away right now, she is trying to feel better herself and when she does she'll come back, everything will be fine". This tells the truth but also isn't damaging either.

She's 2, she doesn't remember that. But when she's old enough to know what it means tell her the truth. But don't tell her anything else.

No 2 yr old is capable to understand the
complexity of such a situation as this I'd
tell her to stop asking such question.
