Emily Stratton Obituary

"Em" or "Emmy" entered eternal life on Saturday, October 28, 2023. Her spirit is carried on by her two children, three grandchildren, one great grandchild, and an extended family of relations and friends who will always hold her close at heart.

Those who've taken Emily's life lessons to heart will continue to ensure that kindness is bestowed upon family, friends, and strangers alike. Friends were counted as blessings in her life and her beloved pets undoubtedly loved her beyond measure. Most of all, it is certain her love for her family always came first.

She is survived by her children and grandchildren whose photos she would share with extreme pride at any given chance. Daughter, Carrie Gillette (John) of Bloomington, Indiana; son, Charlie Stratton (Julie) of Boyne City, Michigan. Grandchildren, Emily Johnson (Dylan) of Castro Valley, California; Jacob Gillette of Bloomington, Indiana; and Will Stratton of Boyne City, Michigan. One great granddaughter, Sylvia Johnson of Castro Valley, California. Emily leaves behind many nieces, nephews, friends, and family too numerous to list but not forgotten. Emily was reunited in heaven with her parents Albert T. & Antoinette J. Washburne; her brother and sister-in- law Tom and Betty Washburne and nephew Jamie Washburne.

Emily wishes memories of her life give friends and loved one's joy and not sorrow. Please join us in celebrating her life at 10:00 a.m. on May 18, 2024 at the First Presbyterian Church where you may remember Emily as the church secretary for many years before her retirement.
