Most recently she made her home in Myrtle Beach, one of her favorite places to vacation, where she could enjoy the ocean and outdoors all year long. Mrs. Saliter is survived by three children, Thomas, Ethan and Cara; two granddaughters, MacKenzie and Hadley; two sisters, Elaine Perrin and Diane Greer; and several other relatives.

The Kenny Funeral Home of Sharon was in charge of arrangements.
