HAVERHILL - Sally (Howard) Lord, age 82, longtime resident of Palm Bay, FL, passed peacefully Tuesday morning, June 7, 2022.

She was born in Lawrence, MA on February 20, 1940, the daughter of late Norman Howard and Simone Howard Aughtigan. She was the wife of Wayne Lord who passed in away 1998 after sharing 25 years of a loving marriage. It gives us peace and comfort that she is reunited with him.

Sally loved her time spent with Wayne at their camp in Meredith, NH. She created many gorgeous counted cross stitch pieces for her family over the past 30 years. She also enjoyed baking, canning, gardening, music, and dancing. Later in retirement she delighted in playing Mahjong with her friends at the senior center.

She leaves behind three children, Valerie Mills and partner Keith Yahn of Palm Bay, FL, Kevin Gaudet and wife Debbie of Chesapeake, VA and Beverly Gaudet of Haverhill, MA. Her three grandchildren Ryan Mills of Pinellas Park, FL, Thomas Gaudet of Williamsburg VA, and Emma Gaudet of Haverhill, MA, and four great grandchildren, Camden, Bryn, Stella, and Owen.  She also leaves her sisters, Norma Ryley and Debbie Medeiros of Lawrence, MA.
