May 17, 1927 ~ May 2, 2021 (age 93)



Ella Mae “Luggie” Wagner, 93, formerly of Princeton, W.Va. passed away peacefully on May 2, 2021 at Liberty Commons Nursing Center, Burlington, NC. 

Luggie was born in Princeton, W.Va. on May 17, 1927 the daughter of the late Clyde Sherwood Dove and Lura Martha Bridges Dove. She was a homemaker, a seamstress and great with anything involving yarn. After moving to Burlington, she worked at “Hancock Fabrics” in East Burlington until their closing.  This ended up being her dream job because she could talk about sewing, knitting, crochet, needle point and cross stitch at length with anyone.

In addition to her parents, she was preceded in death by her husband Harold Evert Wagner, Sr. and a son Harold Evert Wagner, Jr. 

Surviving her are two sons, Howard S. Wagner with Wife Roberta P.Wagner and Charles S. Wagner; three grandchildren, Ashley Lynn Thompson with Husband Scotti F. Thompson, Morgan Mackenzie Wagner with Wife Ashley F. Wagner and Kelsey Logan Wagner and four great grandchildren, Grant Wagner Thompson (10), Bryson J. “Pasquale” Morrow (9), Leona Bren Wagner (3) and Griffin Wayne “Nugget” Thompson (2).
