According to The Independent, Sylvia met and fell in love with Salinger while stationed in Germany for his army service; shortly thereafter they wed but then soon separated after he discovered she had served her country during World War II as an informant.
Liliane was her sister. She worked with Girl Scouts and provided lunch service at school lunches; later she worked as secretary and sold juvenile insurance policies before going on to become an actuary and earning a Bachelor’s Degree from UW-Madison. Additionally she was active with PTA, Degree of Honor Lodge, and her local Rotary club; also serving on its board as President.
Sylvia Welter began her professional track and field career competing on the University of Louisville track and field team, winning various accolades such as All-ACC and USTFCCCA All-American honors in women’s pole vault, in addition to winning an NCAA National Championship title.
Welter embarked on her musical career after college, singing in choirs and soloing for various musical events. Additionally, Welter worked as a vocal coach at the University of Louisville.
Welter married three times: her first was Edgar Y Mels from Germany; during this time, she learned and fluently spoke German; they had two children together before divorcing later that same year. Subsequently, Welter wed Theon Glastetter who also was from Germany.

Sylvia Welter was one of the first women who attracted Salinger. A German-French hybrid with German roots and French culture roots, she was attractive, intelligent (she earned a doctorate in medicine), and mysterious. They met while Salinger was serving with a counterintelligence group to hunt Nazis in Pappenheim, Germany.
Salinger had survived horrific experiences during World War II but still found Welter irresistibly attractive, and they married months after first meeting. Unfortunately, Welter detested Jews almost as strongly as Salinger despised Nazis.
After his marriage to Welter ended in an annulment, Salinger began an extended correspondence with Claire Douglas who eventually became his second wife.
J D Salinger was an esteemed American author who amassed considerable wealth during his life. He wrote several critically-acclaimed short stories and novels, such as The Catcher in the Rye. When he passed away at 91 in 2010, Margaret and Matt Salinger took up his legacy by continuing his works.
He married twice; first to Sylvia Welter after his postwar service in Germany and later Claire Douglas; however, their union was marred by religious disagreements and other issues; Margaret and Matthew were born from this union before it ended in 1966; additionally Joyce Maynard briefly served as his mistress before they divorced shortly after that. At his death he had an estimated worth of $20 Million.
