Biographical information

After her early education, she went to Alexandria, MN where she was trained in sewing. After her training, she accepted a position working for Dr. Borchardt as a domestic helper at Osakis, MN.

Hannah met and later married Albert E. Anderson on 3 May, 1923 at Salem Lutheran Church in Gordon Twp, Todd County.

Secondly, Melba Ellen followed. She was born on 6 December, 1926. Hannah and Albert took over operation of the Flyckt farm so Hannah's parents, John and Ragnhild could begin a Truck Garden at Nelson, over in Douglas County, where John was later injured. While working, he fell from the back of a wagon and received internal injuries which rendered him incapable of work, causing them to return to Little Sauk Twp. Hannah and Albert continued to farm where John died on 19 November, 1929, due to his prior internal injuries, at the age of 68. He was laid to rest at Long Bridge Lutheran Church Cemetery. John was preceded in death by his son Emil/Amil who died very young.

She was an equal partner in the dairy operation and she facilitated egg and poultry production on the farm. Hannah often knitted mittens etc. for the children of the less fortunate in the area. Hannah was a life long member of Long Bridge Lutheran Church and Ladies Aid.

Design rationale

The arms are synthesis of the arms of Vaster Gotaland, Sweden. Which was the last place of habitation, and was the point of departure from the old to the new world for the family. The Shield is without the stars above and below the lion as a difference, along with the lion being winged or gold, as a cant on the surname of Flyckt, or Flykte, which is Norwegian in origin, meaning "to escape, flee, or fly," with a reversal of metal and tiniture. The maternal origin of the family, Lenes, is displayed with the long staved cross and Axe of Sor Trondelag, Norway, being held by the lion. The crest is a church resting on a bridge charged with a Luther Rose proper in reference to the family's long history with this faith community in Little Sauk Twp, Todd County, Minnesota. The motto in Norwegian, "Christ is the Bridge between God and Man" on a double escroll is an expression of faith in Christ and his role with humanity. Hannah spoke Norwegian prior to her early education.
