Biographical history

Anne (also known as Annie) Winkelmans, her husband Leopold, and their four children were long-time residents of B.C.'s lower mainland area. After W.W.II the family moved from West Vancouver to Richmond and, after spending a year in Europe in 1958, they purchased and ran a store in Lynn Valley Canyon, North Vancouver. The Winkelmans' youngest daughter, Dayde, eventually became a professional ballet dancer. Mrs. Winkelmans corresponded regularly with her daughter as she studied at the Royal Ballet School in London, and then went on to tour in Europe and the States.
In July 1961, during a visit with her parents, Dayde was killed in a hiking accident in Lynn Canyon. The Winkelmans sold the store and moved into an apartment in Vancouver. In 1981, after the death of her husband, Anne Winkelmans completed her B.A. at the University of British Columbia. In 1989, after taking a course in creative writing, she wrote her daughter's biography.
