An update!
Jessie Toon of Lambeth has been found alive, but not so well, in the 1911 census, a patient in the Whitechapel Infirmary -
Jessie Toone, 39, widow, Flower Seller, born Devon Exeter
(in 1901 she was 30, born Devon Crediton)
In fact she had been admitted to the infirmary on 27th February 1911 - as Toon - from 88 Wentworth Street, a Lodging House. Suffering from Laryngitis. Was not discharged until 9th May.
Said to be the widow of Robert Toon, a Plate layer.
There are several admissions for her to the Infirmary and "the late" Mr Toon's name changes almost every time
(it was Thomas, and they got it right once at least anyway) Strangely the widow was once discharged "to Husband"

Early admissions include 29 September 1903 (sore throat), from 27 Brick Lane, another Lodging House. And it says she had been settled two years in Whitechapel?

Given the address of Osborn(e) Street, E. mentioned in Kobie's newpaper report of Jessie the charwoman cum nurse and her troubles in June 1903 (is right on top of Brick Lane), there are some striking similarities between these two women and their condition.
Their age, where they are living, admissions to poor law institutions and general circumstances. Which is not to say that they are the same person of course.
A Jessie Toon made another appearance in St George's workhouse in September 1905, a 35 year old Laundress who again stayed just the one day.
Then back to Whitechapel??
