Resided in: Meriden, CT

Heather B. Morgan, 47, of Meriden, passed away suddenly on May 11, 2020. Born in Meriden on January 2, 1973, she was a daughter of the late Charles and Mary Alice Jones Vaughn.

Heather graduated from Platt High School in Meriden, and later earned a degree in Legal Studies, working for many years as a Paralegal at Brown & Welsh, P.C. in Meriden. She was a pillar of the community, volunteering countless hours of her time to the youth of Meriden and Central CT, and holding various Board positions with local organizations as well as CT youth football and cheer conferences. She loved music and brought love, laughter and insurmountable joy to the lives of so many. Her sudden departure has left all that loved her with a tremendous void that can never be filled.
