Kathy Janice (Salter) Lerner Obituary
July 30, 1947 - March 6, 2015 Kathy Janice (Salter) Lerner, President of World Wide Travel Inc., in Long Beach, died March 6 at her home in the Bixby Knolls area of Long Beach with family at her side. She was 68. Her parents started World Wide Travel in 1962. Lerner later took over and successfully ran the company for more than 35 years. Lerner grew up in Boyle Heights and Ladera Heights. She married Matt Lerner in 1996 and loved spending time aboard their boat, "The Outpost," which was docked close to the Long Beach Yacht Club. Kathy also had a special love for the Kona Village Resort in Hawaii. As the top travel agent for the idyllic resort, she returned often, where she was considered "ohana," or family. Her ashes were scattered at sea in a private memorial service at the coordinates where her late husband's ashes were previously scattered. Lerner is survived by stepchildren Lori, Jody, Rob, Scott, Amy and nephew Jeff and his wife Lori.
