Ann Mette Heindorff, Born October 19, 1942 - Passed Away April 1, 2009.
Internet Philately Leader Ann Mette Heindorff
Denmark's Ann Mette Heindorff, a topical collector who developed an extensive range of outstanding online exhibits, died April 1 at the age of 66. She coupled her interest in art, music, literature, and computer technology into creating Internet sites that dealt with art and travel on stamps and the renowned engraver, Czeslaw Slania. She developed her extensive Slania site to serve as an online catalog for all Slania collectors.
Her wide-ranging Web sites included ones dealing with the arts and philately, literature on stamps, the Glucksburg family royal dynasty, travel through stamps, Byzantine stamps, Christmas seals, the Vikings, and, of course, the engravings of Slania.
Before Mette died she handed over her web site to Jørgen Jørgensen, the president of the Danish Thematic Association. ("De Danske Motivsamlere" - http://motivsamler.dk/), who will maintain Heindorff's Web pages for the future.
Early in her career, Heindorff worked for the Danish Foreign Service and was able to travel throughout the world. She was educated in the law and spoke Danish, English, French, German, Lithuanian, and had what she said was a "fair knowledge" of Russian. She also could read and understand Swedish and Norwegian.
Obituary written by Toke Nøby and Tony VellaAbout The Author
Finally I am a member of various virtual stamp clubs, discussion fora, art clubs, and computer graphic clubs. Apart from stamps I am very interested in arts, music, modern literature, and computer technology. I like jogging in the woods, cooking for my family and friends, and am also an amateur painter.
In my young youth I was employed in the Danish Foreign Service and travelled the world as such for seven years, working permanently in Danish embassies abroad. I usually say that I travelled the world, not like Jules Verne in 80 days, but in 80 months :)
Other than Danish I speak English. I am retired.
