West Windsor Township, NJ - Sally Jane Pearl Alter (nee Podob), formerly of Edison Township and Monroe Township, NJ, passed away peacefully on February 23, 2022. She was 90 years old.

Sally was born in 1931 in Shamokin, PA to Taube and Louis Podob and grew up in Perth Amboy, where she graduated from Perth Amboy High School. After graduation, she worked at Cluett Peabody & Co. She married Herbert Alter in 1953 and raised her three children in Roselle and then Edison Township, New Jersey. She had several subsequent careers, which included working at Royal Worcester & Spode, Titan Industries (owned by her husband), Nordstrom, and her son's dental office.

Sally belonged to EJCC Congregation Beth-El in Edison, where she was active in the Sisterhood, and then Beth El Synagogue in East Windsor. She was also a proud supporter of Women's American ORT (Organization for Rehabilitation through Training). Sally loved to travel and visited many countries.

Sally enjoyed celebrating her milestone birthday with her family at a party in her honor this past September. She is survived by her three sons, Scott (Sara), Marshall (Caryn) and Eric (Susan); grandchildren Zahava (Abe), Ross (Maia), Aliza (Eric), Michael (Elyse), Hirsch (Neta), Todd (Cassandra), Kayla, Julie, and Ari; great-grandchildren Noga, Lavi, David, Aaron, and Isaac.

She was predeceased by her parents, Taube and Louis Podob; her siblings, Murray (Shirley) and Mildred (Ben); her husband Herbert, and her niece, Mona Feldman.
