It may be the last stop for a long-running family dispute. On Wednesday, the Alaska Supreme Court justices heard oral arguments over the estate of Roberta Sheldon, wife of the famous Talkeetna glacier pilot Don Sheldon.
Don Sheldon died in 1975 and Roberta Sheldon died in 2014. For the last three years, the couple's three children have been trying to resolve issues with a trust Roberta Sheldon left behind in which Robert Sheldon is the administrator.
Two of the adult children, Robert and Kate, recently completed a luxury chalet located on property the family owns on the Ruth Glacier. The court case doesn't involve the chalet, but it does involve the Mountain House, a small cabin on the same property that was built by Don Sheldon in the 1960s
