Melissa Dawn Brown

December 9, 1975 ~ March 18, 2021 (age 45)


Melissa Dawn Brown Dess, 45, of Great Falls, MT departed far too soon during the early morning hours of March 18, 2021. Cremation has been entrusted to Croxford Funeral Home.

“Moolissa” or “Missy”, as she was affectionately known as, was born on December 9, 1975 to Charlene Brown Clark in Great Falls. Raised in Great Falls and the western part of the USA, Missy had trials in life that were exceedingly difficult, unimaginable even, yet she grew to be the kindest woman that you could hope to meet. Eddie Dess recognized that after the two met in Great Falls and the couple were married in 2001, ultimately spending 25 years together.

Melissa traveled a great amount of the country but what she enjoyed the most was working with the elderly, providing care and compassion. While caring for her fellow man and raising her children, she could also be found in the great outdoors, fishing and listening to music.

Sometimes the best thing you can do is not think, not wonder, not imagine, not obsess. Just breathe and have faith that everything will work out for the best.

Melissa will be missed by many but especially her sons, Kenneth Vukasin, Lyrix Vukasin, and Dustin Dess; daughter, Jeanne Dess; Granddaughter, Zoie Dess; Grandson, Lyrix Vukasin; Sisters Shirley Thumb, Sherry Brown and Susie Brown; Brothers Benjamin Brown and Merle Thumb and her Grandparents Sherly and Dale Clark.
