Dany, who died on 25th October 2016, was one of two daughters of their English mother and father Michael, a Polish airman who miraculously escaped to Britain in 1939 and was a pilot in the RAF during the war. The family lived in Harrow, London. Dany gained a place at Oxford University to study French and German, although she considered Botany at one stage. Dany chose teaching as a profession, and came to the East Riding to Longcroft School in Beverley for the rest of her career.

In the 1980s she joined the East Yorkshire & Derwent Area Ramblers to get to know the East Riding countryside better. She was recruited by a visiting Ramblers staff member to join the Area committee as Secretary. She went on to occupy with distinction many posts at Area and Group level.
