Frijke, born in 1915, was the youngest daughter of Gerrit and Fopkje van den Top from De Valk, Ede in The Netherlands. The large farmers family knew poverty, like many in those days and two sons left for Canada, looking for a better future. Frijke married carpenter Hendrik Dijs after a long engagement.
