help with location of Doris Annear or known as Butler daughter of Sarah Douglass nee Butler

Trying to locate Doris's movements after 1914 where her name appeared in the Cairns Post having attended a ball with her cousin Clary Owen. Doris was born in charters Towers to Sarah Butler in Dec 1900. Her father William Vivian Annear died prior to her birth, July 1900. I have evidence where Doris attended Stannary Hills School during 1912 & having attended the ball in Cairns with Clary had obviously moved to Cairns with her Aunt Catherine Owen nee Annear & Uncle Albert Owen.
Any information would be appreciated. Sarah Butler later married Thomas Douglass who apparently changed his name to Osbourne. Sarah died in Rockhampton in 1970.

What happened to Dorothy (Doris) Annear/Butler born Charters Towers 1900

Mother Sarah Anne Butler father William Vivian Annear who died prior to her birth. Parents never married.

Looking for Doris Annear

I have evidence she attended school in Stannary Hills North Queenslan Australia for a time in 1911 aged 12yrs, then a news paper article in the Cairns Post North Queenland Australia where she attended a ball in in 1914. Have hit a brick wall I surmize she was my Mothers cousin with whom she attended the ball. My Mother was Clary Owen & her mother was Catherine Annear & her mother was Catherine Vivian married to Joseph Annear. As there is no other records that I can find of Annears re Stannary Hills I can only assume she was a neice of my Grandparents.

Since my last post I have discovered Doris was born 1900 in Charters Towers and her mother was Sarah Anne Butler who had a liasion with William Annear prior to his death. Dorothy was born after he died and Sarah later married Thomas Douglass & she died in 1970 in Rockhampton. Unable to find any info of Dorothy's movements after 1914. Any help would be appreciated.
