WILTON — Natalie Annie Carlton, “Nat,” 87, of Wilton died peacefully just before noon on Tuesday, Sept. 18.

She was born March 1, 1931, in Dallas Plantation, one of nine children to Richard and Ida (Oakes) Steward. She was a graduate of Rangeley High School and in December of 1952, married Lynwood “Tweet” Carlton, also a Rangeley native.

For many years she was employed at Riddle Pharmacy in Rangeley and later at the Freeman Pharmacy on Main Street in Wilton. She later worked at G.H. Bass in Wilton and will long be remembered by local folks for working with the Cowallis family at the Dude ‘N Deb clothing store on Route 2 in Wilton. For 11 years, Nat was employed as a greeter at the Farmington Walmart.

She was a devoted wife and mother and enjoyed spending time with her family. She was blessed with having two grandsons of whom she was most proud.

Nat is survived by her husband of nearly 66 years, “Tweet” Carlton, of Wilton; their son, Rick Carlton, and his wife, Lorraine (Lake) Carlton, of Livermore and their sons: Andrew Carlton of Fairfield and Joel Carlton and his wife, Michelle, of Mechanic Falls. She is also survived by four great-grandchildren, Emily, Hannah, Gage and Addison; and siblings Carmen Steward, Ernie Steward, Dottie Savage, Jolene Adams and Rosie Brown.
