Reading Minnow's account of Rosa made me realise just how normal it is in fiction for beloved nannies/retainers to subordinate their own lives, families etc, to those of their employers. The only exception I can think of is Ole Golly in *Harriet the Spy*, who moves out about halfway through the book to get married. (The cook who marries the burglar in *The Phoenix and the Carpet* wasn't half beloved enough to count.)
