Melissa J. Clark, age 49 of Ponsford, MN, passed away on Sunday, September 9, 2018 at Essentia Health in Fargo, surrounded by her family.
Melissa “Missy” was born on March 4, 1969 in Park Rapids, MN to Myron Norcross and Sara Clark. Missy grew up and lived in the Pine Point area. She graduated from Circle of Life in 1987 and obtained her Paraprofessional Certification and was employed with the Pine Point School for 16 years, until her health started to decline.

Missy loved her family beyond any words can explain. She always had her door open and would do anything for anyone. She enjoyed being around family, especially watching her children and grandchildren grow and taking occasional trips to the casino.
