Kochman (known as Jean Kochman) born in Boston, Mass.; moved to Lawrence, Mass., and graduated from Lawrence High School in 1934; married Gershon Salhanick in 1944; in the 1950s-1960s returned to Lawrence and worked at several stores and also for Elder Services of Merrimack Valley; member of Temple Emanuel in Andover, Mass., and taught at Hebrew school there.
