Jane Barker Macdonald (Dunn)

I have looked everywhere I can think of and cannot find the re-marriage or death of Jane Barker MacDonald(nee Dunn)
She has had a checked life!!!!!
She was born in Yks abt 1856 (Dunn is her mothers maiden name and Barker is probably her birth fathers name, her mother married William Barker after Jane was born) she arrived in Aust (Victoria) with her stepfamily of Girdlestone as a servant aged 13yrs(as Jane Barker Dunn). She married Charles Macdonald in Vic in 1875 as Jane Barker Hunn(she stated her parents were Sarah Hunn and William Hunn - should have been Barker)
She divorced Charles in Victoria in 1894. She had two children born in Vic to Charles - Francis J Macdonald who finished up in SA after the war as did Charles (Francis did a stink in a boys home in NSW from 1893). The daughter Marion E Macdonald married in NSW but finished up in SA. - Jane's brother George Robert Barker finished up in WA - so where did Jane Barker Macdonald (Dunn)finish up.
So I am hoping some helpful researchers can find either her second marriage (she was only 38 when she div Charles)or her death somewhere in Aust. I have even looked for her death in England but could not find anything.
Hope this is not too long an explanation!!!!!!!!!!
