She and husband retired to Palma Majorca in 1973 but returned to Australia four years later. She died on 26 September 1978.


Horder illustrated award-winning books by Nan Chauncy, Joan Phipson and Patricia Wrightson. She also worked for the New South Wales School Magazine from 1958 to 1969.


Two boxes of her drawings (1950–1969) and the manuscript of a talk given by Noreen Shelley in 1975 are held by the National Library of Australia.


She returned to Australia in 1948 with her husband, fellow artist Arthur Freeman. Also onboard the Asturias was author Dale Collins who commissioned Horder to illustrate his book, The Vanishing Boy.


In 1929 Horder left Sydney for California to visit her married sister. She later travelled to Europe, where she worked on commissions for Philips in Holland, before moving to London. There, in the 1930s, her focus was on creating posters, in particular for the Great Northern Railway Company.


The first book that Horder illustrated was Babber Ballads, by W. S. Philbert in 1924. A review in The News wrote that her illustrations “are by far the best part of the book – these are distinctly clever and original”, while the Sydney Mail said she “has a gifted pencil and has caught the humour of the verses with spirit and success”.


Her illustrations began appearing in The Home in the early 1920s and then she was recruited by The Sun and moved to Melbourne. After a stint at The Sun she returned to Sydney and set up her own studio, where she worked alongside Betty Rogers, who had trained with her and also acted as her model.
