We love our sonos system but my wife is not app friendly. Are there any physical controllers that can connect to the speakers?

The other Option is to hook up Alexa or Google Home, but you’d need to have a streaming service (you can use Free Spotify).  Then she can select music, radio, and adjust volume by room by voice.  That could make her appy!

And when they do, they look very much like the app (like this one: SmartSwitch Lite (UK/EU) | VIOLET (violet-ultra.co.uk)), which makes your wife not want to use it.

I miss the Ikea remote (Ikea’s inexpensive Sonos remote control is worth every penny - The Verge) in the link provided by @GuitarSuperstar. Would your wife not like to use voice commands for Sonos (either via Google Assistant of through Alexa)?

But no physical remote will give you the amount of control the Sonos app gives you.
