Hannah Pasternack (Clark)




After moving to Missoula, Mont., and earning her master’s degree in a single year, Hannah had a sudden medical emergency that she was unable to survive. Her new life there was shockingly cut short at the age of 32. 

Growing up in Flagstaff, Ariz., and later moving to Pagosa Springs, Colo., in 2001, Hannah made a lot of lifelong friends. She graduated high school in Pagosa, later graduated from Fort Lewis College and settled in Bayfield to work and start a family. Marriage, a son, two dogs and a cat soon followed, along with work at Mercy Regional Medical Center. She was working for the University of Montana at the time of her death. 

Hannah is survived by her husband, Will Pasternack, son Beckett, and her parents, Sue and Dana Clark. Her kind, intelligent, funny and often brutally honest way of dealing with the world will be greatly missed.
