Eleanor Roy, 91

MARLBOROUGH

Many people who came into Eleanor Roy's salon to get their hair done ended up staying longer than anticipated, because the owner and stylist loved to chat with her customers.

"Everybody loved to come to her," her niece Susan Vachon of Marlborough says in a Globe West obituary today. "She enjoyed people."

Ms. Roy, who owned and operated her salon for more than 50 years, died last Friday at the University of Massachusetts Medical Center. She was 91.
