So long as the felon does not have uncontrolled access to the firearms, yes. That means they are either in someone's direct close possession or under lock. The felon may not have access to the keys or combination to the safe.

Federal law dictates that a felon may not own, purchase, possess, or be allowed access to firearms.

Can the wife of an ex felon own a gun?

That depends on the use of "ex-felon". If the husband was a convicted felon whose conviction was later overturned and their sentence reversed, then the husband is no longer a felon - that is an ex-felon. If the husband is a convicted felon who simply completed his sentence, that is not an ex-felon - that is a felon.In either case, the wife retains the right to own a firearm. However, doing so in the case of a felon husband may send her husband right back to prison - under federal law, a felon may not purchase, possess, or be given access to firearms. Having a firearm in the same home can be considered allowing a felon access to firearms, even if kept in a gun safe.
