Clara Dolores (Scatamacchia) Lesiczka, 94, longtime Haverhill resident, died Thursday morning, March 5, at Valley Health Center (formerly known as Amesbury Village), Amesbury. She was the wife of the late Adam Lesiczka.
Born in Haverhill, May 29, 1920, she was the daughter of the late Ferdinando and Concetta Scatamacchia and was a graduate of Haverhill High School.
