She once had tea with Bess Truman at the White House. Hedla was area director for Girl Scouts of America and was living in Washington, D.C., at the time….

Hedla left her place to the Nature Conservancy, Carlson said, and the bulk of her estate to the University of Alaska in honor of her late husband.
