Elizabeth Evans, Blaina, Gwent

This will be like looking for a needle in a haystack :)

Elizabeth was one of the daughters of Thomas and Dinah (nee Davies) Evans and born on 21 May 1882 (allegedly).

1891 census she is living with her family and is aged 8
1901 census still living with family, albeit a bit smaller, and is 18 and a mother's help
1911 census living with her widowed mother, occupation is now housekeeper
1939 register (which is where I got her DOB from) she is living with her nephew and is an office caretaker.

I have been told that she lived behind the Post Office in the High Street and was a well known character due to loss of memory, so it sounds as though she had some form of dementia.

Does anyone remember her from their childhood? I have no idea when she died but have been told that she never married.
