Jacob "Jake" Ostroff #usa

Thanks to both Johanna Becker and Sherri Boblish for finding missing info on my cousin Jake Ostroff.  Now I know an ex wife name and an additional daughter I was not aware of.
Thanks again.

If, as Johanna found, Jacob OSTROFF's ex-wife was Mrs. Donna Notis, than this 1955 Florida marriage may be your Jacob OSTROFF marrying Donna Londy.

This info is from an index, so the actual certificate may show their parents names.

I could not find an obit.  I did find that arrangements for his burial were under the direction of IJ Morris at Star of David Cemetery of the Palm Beaches, West Palm Beach, FL.  You might try contacting the cemetery to obtain any info they might have. Found this by googling.  

I did find an obit in the Philadelphia Inquirer for 23 Sept. 1978 for Sherry Ostroff who died in Paris on 14 Sept. 1978.  She was the dtr of Mrs. Donna Notis and Mr. Jacob Ostroff, sister of Miss Michele Ostroff, stepdtr of Mr. Martin Notis, stepsister of Miss Leslie Notis.  Address of Donna and Martin Notis was given as 780 Lingo Dr. Warminster, PA.  She was buried at Shalom Memorial Park, Section David on Byberry and Pine Rds. source:  newspapers.com

The Philadelphia Inquirer for 1 Jan. 1969 lists marriage licenses and has one for Martin Leonard Notis age 38 to Donna Ostroff age 33.  source: newspapers.com

I'm trying to find a Death Notice or Obit for a Jacob "Jake" Ostroff.  He was born on Jan 7, 1931 to a Goldie Ostroff, husband unknown.  He died on Feb 13, 2017 in Del Ray, Florida.  Jack's occupation was that of a camera man for major TV stations. He was married at least once, and had a daughter Sherry who died in 1978 while in France.  I am hoping the death notice may include among other things his wife(s) name and maybe a father's name.  Who knows what else.
