Chicago Sun-Times - - NATION / WORLD -

Mar­garet “Merry” Wag­ner, 88, beloved wife of the late Louis Wag­ner, died peace­fully at home on July 13, 2020. Merry was sur­rounded by her lov­ing fam­ily at the time of her death. She was pre­ceded in death by her par­ents John and Mar­garet Fraser, her brother, Robert Fraser and in­fant daugh­ter Jen­nifer Anne. Sur­vivors in­clude son Larry (Chrissie) Wag­ner, daugh­ter Sharon (Monte) Cor­dray, daugh­ter LuAnne (Larry) Feather­stone and son Mike (Katie) Wag­ner. Merry was a de­voted grand­mother to Chris (Les­lie) Cor­dray, Nathan Petronzio, Kevin (Lauri) Smith, Erin (Casey) Sch­wab, Brian (Au­drey) Smith, Adam (Claire) Cor­dray, Chelsea (Mike) Bianchi, Chad Schott, Scott (Mar­ija) Smith, Court­ney (A.J.) Scha­ef­fer, Marissa Wag­ner and Joey Wag­ner. Be­ing great-grand­mother was one of the most pre­cious things in her life. Her great grand­chil­dren in­clude Olivia, Timmy, Francesca, Aubrey, Carter, James, Char­lotte, Sam, Ben­nett, Daniella and sweet Emily wait­ing to join her cousins.

A lov­ing, gen­er­ous, gen­tle per­son, Merry made a last­ing im­pres­sion on any­one who met her or knew her. The con­sum­mate party giver, no one ever went home hun­gry from the Wag­ner house. Al­ways im­pec­ca­bly dressed, Merry never missed a fam­ily func­tion or cel­e­bra­tion. Liv­ing at Bea­con Hill brought many new friends into her life. The nurses and aids who so lov­ingly cared for her, the main­te­nance staff who came to fix any­thing she needed, the din­ing room staff who knew her fa­vorite things to eat and drink, her won­der­ful friends and neigh­bors, the staff at the re­cep­tion desk and the ad­min­is­tra­tion staff, ev­ery­one loved her. We con­stantly heard “Oh, Merry Wag­ner is your mom, she is so won­der­ful, we just love her”. She never met any­one who was not soon some­one very spe­cial to her. Merry’s faith was an in­te­gral part of her life and she was a mem­ber of Christ the King Catholic Church 1501 S. Main ST, Lom­bard IL. Due to cur­rent re­stric­tions, a pri­vate fu­neral mass will be held at the church. A Cel­e­bra­tion of Life is planned for a later date.

In lieu of flow­ers, me­mo­rial gifts can be sent in Merry’s name to Peace Hospice, 1717 N Naper Blvd #301, Naperville IL 60563 who pro­vided so much lov­ing care dur­ing her fi­nal days.
