ANCHORAGE - Gov. Sarah Palin ordered flags lowered to half-staff in memory of Alaska Stewart Linck.
She was the former territorial legislator who died at her home last month. She was 97.
Palin said in a statement Monday that Alaskans are forever indebted to Alaska Linck for her devoted service and her pioneering spirit.
Linck settled in Fairbanks. She served in the Territorial Legislature from 1943 to 1947.
Flags will fly at half-staff in her memory on Wednesday.
