Barbara Louise Drees was the eldest child born to Albert Drees Jr. and his wife Marian (nee Augustin). She was married twice, but neither of these unions produced a child.

Barbara was diagnosed with ALS or Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (also known as Lou Gehrig's Disease), which is a specific disorder involving the death of neuron cells in the brain. Within a relatively short time, she deteriorated to the point where she required hospice care. Barbara died, from ALS, at age 60.

A memorial service for Barbara was held at Sharon Lutheran Church in Grand Forks on Monday, May 23 and she was buried at Memorial Park South.
