Doorkins Magnificat has met the Queen and featured in her own children's book during her 10-year residence at Southwark Cathedral. Now she's retired from duties at the cathedral.
In the past decade, she's become a much-loved member of the cathedral family, with a big social media following and her own range of souvenirs.
"Due to my deteriorating health especially eyesight (I keep bumping into old things ... not the Dean!) I am going to be living with one of the cathedral staff where I will enjoy my semi-retirement.
"Please don't worry about me, I will be 'taking over' a home with someone I have known for many years and love to bits.
"I know I am going to be very happy there surrounded by so much love and affection plus food, very good food!"
When the cathedral was evacuated and sealed off in the aftermath of the London Bridge terrorist attack, local police officers put out food for her whilst her normal carers were unable to reach her.
Doorkins' decade-long tenure at the cathedral will be remembered by future generations: she is depicted in a stone corbel to be installed on the building to replace a worn piece of stonework.
