Johanna Marie Drees was born on her parent's farm in 1888. Still in her infancy, Hanna contracted Whooping Cough which left her physically and mentally retarded.

Hanna had to be spoon fed and would simply keep her mouth shut when full. She often fussed when her mother returned from some outside chore, at least until picked up and then she would be content to go back to her playpen.

After several years Hanna seemed to regress even further, not knowing if she was full or not and she was generally not at alert.

Hanna died a few months before what would have been her tenth birthday and is buried at Saint John's Lutheran Cemetery in Daykin, Nebraska.
