Gloria E. Senno, 95, lifelong Haverhill resident, passed peacefully at the Baker-Katz Nursing Home, Haverhill, early Wednesday morning, Jan. 18.
Born in Haverhill, Aug. 12, 1921, she was one of five children of the late Felice G. and Teresa (Bonando) Senno and was a graduate of Haverhill High School, class of 1939. She went on to graduate from hairdressing school in 1942 from the Lawrence Academy, and for many years worked at the Beautyland Salon in Washington Square.

Senno was a member of the Catholic Women’s Club of the former St. George’s Church and a parishioner of All Saints Church of Haverhill. Her devotion to her church and family has given her great comfort and joy over the years.
