Mrs. Salter grew up with six brothers and sisters in rural Douglas and Edgar Counties and graduated from Newman High School in 1966. 

She worked at the former Zenith plant in Paris.

Mrs. Salter loved children of all abilities and ages.  She spent most of her career working as a Teacher’s Aide in District 95 and then various childcare centers, ending her career at Grace Lutheran Child Development Center.  She was affectionately known to a generation of children as "Miss Rose".

She was widely known for her infectious smile, laugh and kind heart, her love of children, being a good friend and for her generous spirit.  She was indeed a friend to the friendless, a kind soul to people in need and a loving and beloved wife, mother, grandmother and great grandmother.  She will be missed and remembered forever.

Memorial may be made in her name to the charity of the donor's choice.
