Clarissa’s Passing

Clarissa Rizal: Alaska Native Artist Blog - Mon, 12/12/2016 - 3:30pm

Clarissa, November 2016. Photo by son, Kahlil Hudson.

This is not Clarissa writing this, but her daughter, Ursala. On October 14th our mother was diagnosed with colon and liver cancer. At that time she was bed-ridden for at least 23 hours per day. On October 19th I flew to her Tulsa studio apartment, packed her up, and we drove back to Pagosa Springs. On November 1st we visited with an oncologist in Durango who told my mother that she might have a few weeks to several months to live. During the month of November my siblings, Lily and Kahlil, took turns caring for our mother with an optimistic, vigorous cancer-fighting health regimen in our family home. On December 2nd her organs truly began to fail, and at 12:30AM on December 7th she left this world.

To read more about her last days you may visit her healing journal at CaringBridge:

We will be celebrating and honoring our mother’s life with a potluck on Saturday, December 17th from 4 to 7 PM in Pagosa Springs, Colorado at Rez Hill Grill at 158 Hot Springs Boulevard, Pagosa Springs, CO 81147. **NOTE** the venue has changed from the previous location due to severe weather conditions!

There will be a huge memorial service in Juneau, Alaska this coming summer 2017. Please stay tuned for details.

Further monetary contributions will go directly towards all memorial expenses. To donate via GoFundMe, please check out the GoFundMe campaign by clicking here. For a mailing address to send checks to, please email me at ursalarose(at)
