Natalie A. Wagner, also known as Natalie Rawinski, 53, of Beacon Street in Orange, has passed away. She fought breast cancer for 3 years before losing her battle on December 11th, 2021
Natalie was born December 29th, 1967 in Athol and was the daughter of the late Nathaniel and Phyllis (Darrow) Wagner and grew up in Orange, graduating from Mahar Regional High School with the class of 1986.
Natalie enjoyed traveling, especially to Florida where she could visit Disney World. An animal lover, she enjoyed staying at Kidani Village with her family where she could wake up and watch the giraffes from her bed and be in the parks snacking a few hours later. She enjoyed crafting and never settled on a hobby she favored best but instead conquered everything she set out to try. She was an incredible baker, often keeping her children, especially her daughter, up through the night until all hours of the morning to help her complete massive displays of cookies, cakes, fudges, pastries and so on. She enjoyed sharing her spoils with her associates, especially during the holidays. She loved decorating for holidays, especially Christmas and Halloween, and would have impressive home displays that she was so proud of. In addition to her holiday displays, she had a talent for aesthetic marketing which she commonly dedicated to her job.
Natalie worked at Carrol’s Market as a teenager, then moved on to Victory Supermarket in 1991. She stayed with the company when Hannaford acquired them and worked her way up from cashier to Point of Sale coordinator with Victory and onward to the Deli & Seafood Manager at Hannaford on Lancaster St in Leominster. Natalie was a hard worker and dedicated 30 years of hard work and dedication to her job. Even off the clock she’d be planning how she’d set up her displays for Super Bowl or holidays and would often be seen with her daughter, Danielle, painting and decorating food cases.
Natalie is survived by her children Danielle Wagner, Adam Wagner, Andrew Wagner and her fur-child Biscuit; as well as her siblings, Tracy Gaudet of Orange, Wayne Wagner, of Bernardston, Bruce Burritt Sr. of Orange and David Wagner of Nova Scotia.
She also leaves her nephew and nieces, Chelsea Alvarez, Alyssa Gaudet, Tiffany DuBeau and Christopher DeBie, who she found and reunited with our family.
Besides her parents, Natalie was predeceased by her brother Randy Wagner and sisters, Gail Burritt, Lisa Wagner, Joyce DuBeau as well as her aunt Margaret “Peggy” Darrow.

A memorial service and interment will be held at a later date and time to be announced.
