In memoriam: Weta Ray Clark

The News & Observer mourns the loss of Weta Ray Clark, a former section editor and reporter at the paper. Weta died Saturday of non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma. She was 44.

Weta’s journalism career included work as a copy editor at The Philadelphia Inquirer and Newsday. She came to the N&O as editor of the Home and Garden section.

My thoughts are with Weta’s family and colleagues at this sad time.

UPDATE: Pam Nelson, a copy editor for the N&O features section, shares her memories of Weta.
