After a radical sympathectomy surgery for high blood pressure and years of excessive drinking, Christiana Morgan committed suicide at the age of 69 at Denis Bay, St. John, Virgin Islands on March 14, 1967.

She [Christiana Morgan] left a Conrad Aiken poem to be read over her grave.

“O sweet clean earth, from whom the green blade cometh!

When we are dead, my blest beloved and I,

Embrace us well, that we may rest forever,

Sending up grass and blossoms to the sky.
