AKWESASNE – Melissa M. King, 47, of 1399 River Road, Snye, passed away Wednesday afternoon, October 9, 2019 at IAK HIH SOH THA Lodge after a valiant battle with cancer.

Missy was born October 15, 1971 in Cornwall, Ontario, the daughter of the late Linda M. (Cook) King and Harry A. King. She attended schools on the reservation before graduating from General Vanier. She than continued her education at Syne Tech School with a certification in Home Health Care. Missy later went to St. Lawrence College earning a degree in Social Work and graduated from SUNY Potsdam with a degree in Psychology.

Missy dedicated her life working and serving others with her various talents. She worked at the first Home for the Elderly in St. Regis, later with IAK HIH SOH THA Lodge, and also did private home care. More recently, she worked for the Ahkwesasne Mohawk Board of Education as a bus driver and also was a teacher’s aide with Mohawk School for a time. She also owned and operated King’s Marina. Her generous spirit was evident in all she did. She cherished the time she shared with her grandchildren, watching her nephews play lacrosse and hockey, and doing crafts and sewing. She took great enjoyment in “running the roads” and traveling and was a faithful Radio Bingo player.

Missy is survived by her son, Tony King; her father, Harry King and his companion, Alice Cryderman; her sister and best friend, Maggie King; her grandchildren, Nataya Delormier-King and Rakwirarorkos Beauvais; and her nephews, Gage and Cameron King. She is also survived by her godfather, Bill Cook; her godchildren, Justin Mitchell, Orenda Herne, Sarah Cook, Gage King, Cameron King, and Bradley Green; and numerous aunts, uncles, cousins, and friends.

In addition to her mother, who died on March 20, 2002, she was predeceased by her brother, Allen Troy King on February 27, 1998.

Friends may call at her home, 1399 River Road, starting Sunday 3:00 PM until 12:30 PM Tuesday. A Mass of Christian Burial will be celebrated Tuesday 2:00 PM at St. Regis Catholic Church with Rev. Jerome Pastores, celebrating.

Missy kindly requested that no flowers be sent. Her request was that donations in her memory by donated to Snye Recreation Committee, Hogansburg/Akwesasne Volunteer Fire Department, or Akwesasne Home Support.

So sad to hear about Missy. Harry & Maggie, sorry for your loss, and all your family members. Missy was a kind and giving person, I remember her driving me all the way to Ogdensburg to get gas when the pumps were out at the marina. All the communities of the area will certainly miss her big heart.

So very sorry to hear of Missy's passing; a huge heart, warm smile, very quick witted & funny. The love she showed for her family was so incredible. We shared quite a bit sitting at my dinner table, which I am thankful for. Your job on earth is through & your new journey is just beginning. Walk softly in your moccasins I'll remember you always.

Our deepest sympathies to Missy's family and friends. Missy was an awesome person, and kicked butt in the marina kitchen in the heat of the summers and still had a smile or smart 'alec' remarks. She was quick witted, a trait that we admired, a genuine person who cared about those around her and let it show. We will miss her on our river stops at the Marina and the kitchen will never be the same. Rest in love, Missy.

At this sorrowful period in your life, please accept my sincerest condolences for the death of your loved one.  Reflecting on the divine promises found in the Bible will give you hope and strength to keep going until all of God's promises are fulfilled. (Romans 15:13; John 5:28, 29).
