Winifred Treweek (known by friends and family as 'Winnie') was born in the East London district of Bethnal Green in 1915, the second eldest child of Emma Ann Kershaw and Christopher Henry Treweek, a worker in a cardboard factory.

Winnie Treweek was very close to her cousin Muriel Hughes (born 1914, Hackney, London), a daughter of her mother's younger sister, Mrs Elizabeth 'Nell' Hughes (formerly Kershaw). Winnie and Muriel were friends as teenagers and as young women and continued their friendship into late middle-age.

In 1937, when she was In her early twenties, Winnie Treweek married George Logsdon (born 1913, Shoreditch, London), the son of George Logsdon senior, a cabinet maker. The union of Winnie Treweek and George Logsdon produced two daughters - Brenda Logsdon (born 1943) and Janet Logsdon (born 1950).

George and Winnie Logsdon spent the early years of their marriage in East London, but they later moved to Romford, Essex.
