April 10, 1932 - May 5, 2020
Hannah “Honey” Salberg passed away peacefully on May 5, 2020 in Ledgewood NJ surrounded by her loved ones. She celebrated her 88th birthday on April 10. Honey’s personality was reflected in her hair color. She had a fiery, passionate personality with an intense love of theater, art, travel, food, and especially, her family. As a travel agent, she instantly made friends wherever she was. She had the ability to find fellow Brooklynites everywhere she and her husband Jack went, whether on a gondola in Venice, the Parthenon in Athens, or on the Great Wall. She loved telling stories about her trips, even when her family told her they’d already heard them…many times. Her love of food and dining out was something of a mixed blessing as she was the first to praise excellence and anything that fell short she was always clear to voice her opinion. At home, she had the gift of throwing various ingredients together and miraculously creating something delicious. Though usually impossible to recreate another time. She is predeceased by her loving husband, Jack, in 2004. While a bright light has gone out of the world she has been reunited with the love of her life, Jack. Born and married in Brooklyn, Honey and Jack moved to Syracuse for several years then moved to Rockaway Township for 35 years where they raised their 3 sons. In 1996 they moved to Ledgewood where they enjoyed their grandchildren and remainder of their lives. In 2000 they celebrated 50 years of marriage with a “roast” of the happy couple at their request. Humor was an important part of Honey’s personality and will be greatly missed. Honey was a successful business owner, managing her own travel agency: JMB Travel. She ran the business well into her 80’s and booked many large trips for students at County College of Morris and Centenary College through the 1980 and 1990’s. She also volunteered with the Hypertrophic Cardiomyopathy Association where her larger than life personality greeted conference attendees and Golf Outing participants. She is survived and remembered by her family: Howard and wife Karen, Highlands Ranch Colorado, Steven, Ledgewood NJ, and Adam and wife Lisa Rockaway Twp.; grandchildren Daniel, David, Von, Alex, Lily and Rebecca, brother Jerry Roth, Oxnard CA, Niece Lorrayne Mills, Tucson AZ and many lifelong friends and extended family. Honey never missed an opportunity to remind her family how much she loved them and how proud she was of each and every member of the family. Donation is her memory can be made to the Hypertrophic Cardiomyopathy Association, 4hcm.org 18 East Main Street Denville NJ 07834. Due to the COVID pandemic the funeral is private. Friends and extended relatives please contact the family for a virtual Shiva arrangements.
