Gloria Ann (Seneca) Buchenauer, age 88, formerly of Swatara Township, passed away peacefully at Spring Creek Nursing Home on Monday, January 14th. She was preceded in death by her husband, John P. Buchenauer, Sr., her siblings Albert, Eva (Seneca) Girondi, Edward, Mary (Seneca) Furjanic, her grandson, Don Erik Diehl, nephew, Donald Seneca and niece, Donna Marie Meisel. Gloria was a hair stylist for many years at the former Mary Sachs (of Harrisburg) before opening her own salon. She was a member of St. Catherine Laboure Catholic Church, and a member of ABWA. Gloria loved cooking. Her "Italian food fests" are legends and will never be forgotten. But more than cooking … she loved us all. She is survived by her loving daughter, Joanne Diehl, (Dean), sons, John P. Buchenauer, Jr. (Shelly), and Albert, (Doreen), brothers, Richard (Ruth) and Robert, eleven grandchildren, and twenty-three great grandchildren. We forever give our beloved appreciation to Gloria's faithful caregiver, Mindy, for her seven years of unprecedented dedicated service and love. A visitation will be held from 12:00 PM to 1:00 PM Wednesday, January 23, 2019 in the Neill Funeral Home, 3501 Derry St., Harrisburg. Burial will follow at Resurrection Cemetery.
