Early life[edit | edit source]
Frances Emma Hines was born in 1864 in Apsley, Victoria, the fourth daughter of Francis Patrick Hines and his wife Eleanor Mary Caroline (née Brewer). She attended the Fairlight Private Girls School in East St Kilda (later the Clyde School) and then trained as a nurse at the Melbourne Hospital for Sick Children.
Military service[edit | edit source]
Death[edit | edit source]
Sister Hines was nursing at Enkeldoom with sole responsibility for 26 patients, which damaged her own health. She died on 7 August 1900 from pneumonia aggravated by malnutrition in an army hospital in Bulawayo, Rhodesia (now Zimbabwe). She was buried with full military honours in Bulawayo. A marble cross was placed on her grave, funded by her fellow nurses and Victorian Citizen Bushmen. On 27 September 1901, a tablet to her memory was unveiled by Major-General Downes at Fairlight School, erected through subscriptions of her former classmates.
