Need help with obituary lookups in Chicago, LA, and Miami.

Surnames: Wolf, Drexler
Hello, friends :) I am desperately searching for someone to help with obituary look ups in Chicago, Los Angeles, and Miami (US).

I need an obit lookup for Joel Wolf in Los Angeles, California, d 22 October 1981. I don't have knowledge of who his wife was or children, but he was the son of Liza Wolf (Sternlecht after remarrying) and Hyman Wolf. Joel's name used to be Joseph/George but he changed it 19 October 1942, the birth certificate is registered under that date. Here is his SSN Death Index:
If you find the obit, maybe his children will also be in there, and I can finally find out who his children are or were.
We found a small obit for a "Joel L. Wolf" in the Los Angeles Times written 23 October 1981, but I don't know if it's him. Here is a screenshot:

The next obit lookup I need is for a Frances Drexler. She is Joel's brother. She was Frances Wolf prior to being married, when she became Frances Drexler after marrying Maurice Drexler. However, they got divorced December 1965 in Miami Dade, Florida. She then moved to Los Angeles, California, which is where her brother also died. Hopefully, if you find the obit, I can find out who her children are or were. Here is her SSN Death Index:

An obit lookup for Liza Wolf, d 16 April 1962, Chicago Tribune, would also be good. She is Frances and Joel's mother. She remarried and became Liza Wolf Sternlecht (or without the Wolf), too after marrying Adolph Sternlecht who died December 1968 in Florida (also Miami Dade). So maybe Liza Sternlecht is an option. I found her obit in the Chicago Tribune that I can't open further, but it's definitely her's. Here is a screenshot:

Lastly, I don't know if Hyman Wolf ever even had an obituary, does that ever happen? No obits? Anyway, I can't find his. But he died in Chicago, 11 August 1944. He was Frances and Joel's father.

Please let me know if you find anything. Thank you so much!!! Sending lots of love.
