Melissa Niomi Risley (Radke), 586 Lincoln Street, born July 16, 1989, went to be with God on July 20, 2019. 

She is survived by her husband, Mark D. Risley of Monticello, WI; her father and mother, Bob and Mary Radke of Star Prairie, WI; her brother Robert Radke and her sisters Kate and Theresa Radke; as well as her brothers and sister in law, Chris, Paul and Katherine Risley in addition to many nieces, nephews, friends and relatives. 

Melissa was an artistic young woman who lived every day to the fullest; putting her best effort into whatever she put her mind to. She loved farming, skateboarding, biking, crafting, and spending time with Mark. She was a devoted wife, aunt and friend. She will be missed greatly by all whom had the pleasure of knowing her.

A special thanks to Pastor Lance Smith as well as the team at Albion Swords for the incredible compassion, concern and support that they’ve shown throughout Melissa’s illness and in this difficult time. A memorial service for Melissa will be held at Zwingli UCC in Monticello on Saturday, September 7 at 11:00 AM.
