Janice Salter, 81, died peacefully in her home in Brentwood on Sunday with her hands held by her two loves, her husband, Stan Rogers and her son, Chad Lapides. Her heart was held by the joy of her life, her grandson, Keenan Lapides. Janice’s sisters, Phyllis Salter and Nancy Barron also were blessed by being with her at her passing.
The Rogers family has also been by her side for decades, filling her with their love, humor, and intellect. Susan, John, and his wife Sharla, Kenny and his wife Laura, Steven and his wife Sarah welcomed her into their lives and always felt grateful for her love of their father. She treasured their 9 children; Etai, Jacob, Sam, Charlie, Madeline, Maxine, Tessa, Joe, and Theo, who added a whole new wonderful dimension to her already full life. Janice will also be deeply missed by her brother-in-law and travel companion, Bill Barron; her nieces Emily Barron, Liz Barron and Rose Kotoff, as well as many friends and extended family.
Janice graduated from the University of Michigan and Golden Gate University School of Law. Janice and Stan traveled the world. Their passion for travel brought them through most of Western and Eastern Europe, Asia, Australia, and the Americas. As a savant of literature, she understood every literary allusion and enjoyed a vast array of books. She was a lifelong student of art; loved the symphony; and did not miss seeing any film she deemed worthy. Janice was predeceased by her treasured son, Harvey and her parents, Peter Salter and Rose Salter.
A graveside service will be held at Hillside Memorial Park at 6001 W. Centinela Ave, Los Angeles, CA 90045 on Thursday, October 20th @2pm
