Tonja Rose Stratton, “Frenchi”, age 48, passed away suddenly on Saturday, November 14th, 2020 of a cardiac arrest in her home.

She was born December 7th, 1971 to William and Darlene (Ridolfi) Slater, Sr. Tonja graduated from Bradford High School, Class of ’90.

On October 10th, 1998, she married Scott Stratton. They were blessed with three incredible children.

In addition to earning Server of the Year while waitressing, her “glittery” personality allowed her to put a smile on all of her patrons faces.

Nick-named “Frenchi” by her friends, Tonja was fun loving and free spirited who was known for always wearing glitter. She was continuously on the hunt for antiques and would often be found at rummage sales and swap meets. In recent years, painting homes became another source of enjoyment. Her curiosity and desire to learn, even enabled her to build a motorcycle!

Tonja’s lovable spirit will be greatly missed by; her husband, Scott, her children Gabriella, Drake and Trevor; her parents, William and Darlene; three brothers, Jeffery, Jeremiah and William {Leah}; her grandmother, Rosemary Ridolfi, along with loving aunts, uncles, nieces, nephews and cousins.

She was preceded in death by her maternal grandfather, August Ridolfi; paternal grandparents’ William and Loretta Slater and mother and father in law, Robert and Delores Stratton.
