Morgan Danielle Stratton
July 21, 1997 – August 4, 2022
PRATTSBURGH – Morgan Danielle Stratton, beloved daughter, sister, aunt, and niece passed away unexpectedly, at the age of 25, in the early hours of August 4, 2022, at Duke University Hospital, surrounded by her family.
Morgan was born July 21, 1997, to Jeffery and Jennifer (McCormick) Stratton. She was raised in Prattsburgh and was very proud of being a part of the Lady Vikings basketball team for many years, earning multitudes of awards and helping her team reach many sectional titles. She graduated from Prattsburgh Central School in 2015. Morgan then signed on to play with the Corning Community College Red Barons where she was a cherished teammate and gained many lifelong friendships and connections. After college, Morgan found her niche at M&T Bank in Prattsburgh, where she became well loved by her peers and the community. After the closing of the bank, she moved to South Carolina where she tried to find her place and gain new experiences. At this point, she fell ill and was transferred to the amazing medical team at Duke University Hospital where she received her second open heart surgery by Dr. John Haney, with few complications and moved home for recovery. Later, after growing concern, she was taken back down to Duke to have her third, and hopefully, final surgery. After surgery, complications arose, and Morgan passed at 2:27 am on August 4, 2022. She had a smile that would brighten any room and a laugh that will never be forgotten. She will be missed by everyone who knew and loved her.
Morgan is survived by her loving parents, Jeffery and Jennifer; brother, Nicholas (AnneLisa) Digati; sister, Brooke Stratton; niece and nephew Aubree and Owen; maternal grandmother, Kathryn West; boyfriend, Joshua Johnson; dog Millie; as well as many aunts, uncles, and cousins.
Morgan was predeceased by her paternal grandparents, Marjean, Mimi, and James, Papa, Stratton; maternal grandfather, Michael, Pa, McCormick; great aunt, Agnes McConnell; and her uncle, Thomas Renner.
