I think you might be onto something. Could she be a 'perpetual carer'? She was already a bit judgmental as a teenager, and Dot 'gave up' trying to imagine her as a child - maybe her mother died young, and she had to look after her younger siblings (i.e. Molly and Jim s Dad), at least ... maybe with the 'guidance' of a critical maiden aunt of her own! Then, just as she is beginning to have some kind of life of her own, her brother and his wife die, leaving Molly and Jim in her care. And she'd be born in the Victorian era (1860s?) ...
