Hettie was born on August 4, 1939 in St. Cloud to Linton and Eleanor (Shank) Edgerly. She lived in the St. Cloud area for most of her life and was a Librarian at the St. Cloud Public Library. Hettie enjoyed playing and listening to music. She was caring, quiet and content. Above all, she was a devoted mother and loved her son.

Survivors include her son, Steve Carlson of Eagan; and sisters and brother, Mary Jo Dougherty of St. Cloud, Linton (Carol) Edgerly of Sartell and Nancy May of Sartell. She was preceded in death by her parents; and brother in law, Thomas May.

The family would like to extend a special thank you to Carefree Living in St. Cloud for the excellent care that was provided to Hettie over the course of her stay. She truly experienced a home away from home.
