Since I now have an iPad Pad Air 2 I'd like to pass my iPad 2 over the the better half.

My challenge is that she currently has an iPhone 4 and very rarely (if ever) connects it to iTunes to do updates
or backups. I'm sure the iPad 2 would be the same unless she lets the Grandkids kill it like they did her ASUS tablet.

My thought is to wipe it clean and and connect it to my iTunes install to do backups and updates weekly or so.

Is that doable? If it is what problems am I likely to run into (iPad wise) handling it that way.

You should have no problem. Doing frequent backups and updates won't cause any problems.
