|In September 1934, she
wrote a beautiful letter to her Auntie Nel (Eleanor Kinder b1873)
in which she
described her decision to join the Order and how she felt about it
after 7 years.
Doreen was living in London, England when she wrote the letter and Eleanor was living at 32 Normandy Street, Brighton, Victoria. While in England she taught at a girls' school, attended to orphanages and ministered to the very poorest folk living in shocking conditions.

Doreen returned to Australia and is next found in 1936 living at 218 Macquarie Street, South Hobart, Tasmania, today, the location of St Michael's Collegiate School, so perhaps she taught there?
Later in 1949 she is at 8 Martha Crescent, Albert Park, Victoria and noted as a Teacher. From 1954 through to 1968 she lived at 700 Beaufort Street, Mt Lawley, Western Australia.
No record of Doreen's death can be found in the on-line Western Australian Index or in the Victorian Index but it may be supposed that she died in Western Australia.
