Commack, New York—Lorraine Wagner, 93, of Commack, New York, passed away on January 5, 2022.

Lorraine was born in Brooklyn, N.Y. to Jeanne and Irving Braff on October 14, 1928.

Lorraine is survived by her children Cheryl Wagner of Deerfield Beach, Florida, Bill (Ellen) Wagner of Virginia Beach, and Denise (Rick) Ilukowicz of Levittown, New York, her grandchildren Sathi (Emily) Wagner, Amy (Eliot) Weinstein, Greg (Deanna) Wagner, Ashley (Darren) Badolato, Jessica (Michael) D’Amico, Michael Wagner, Megan Ilukowicz, and great-grandchildren Avi and Daniella Weinstein, Audrina D’Amico, and Hunter Badolato.

Lorraine had a long career as an office manager in a machine shop in Florida, where she was the only woman in the company and worked until she was 85. She enjoyed the theater, dancing, playing tennis, traveling the world, and was an excellent canasta and Mah Jongg player. She was always dressed to the nines and loved chunky jewelry that would weigh down an ordinary woman. As her voicemail said for decades, she is out chasing rainbows and butterflies.

Donations in her memory can be made to the Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer Foundation.
