Beatrice Ostrow Jacob, Batya, passed away peacefully on June 24 at the age of 87. Born in Brooklyn, NY to Meyer and Rose Ostrow, Bea lived most of her life in Los Angeles, and was dearly loved by her brothers Joe and Jack Ostrow and their families. Bea’s devotion to children inspired her during many years of teaching and counseling in the LA city schools. In retirement she was an active member of Na’amat and enjoyed traveling, particularly to Israel. She is survived by her son Danny, her daughter Kathy, and her grandchildren Ben, Rose, and Aaron. A devoted mother and loving grandmother, Bea’s grandchildren brought much joy to her life. Funeral services will be held at Mount Sinai Memorial Park, Hollywood Hills, on Tuesday June 30th, 11:30am. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made in her memory to the Jewish Family Service of LA or the Jewish National Fund.
