DEATHS ELSEWHERE

June 06, 1995

Julia Adler Foshko, 97, the last surviving member of a generation of Adlers who began their theatrical careers on stage with their parents in the Yiddish theater, died Saturday at Englewood Hospital in Englewood, N.J. She had been a resident of the Actors Fund Home in Englewood for many years. Among other Broadway roles in the 1920s, she played Shylock's daughter, Jessica, in the David Warfield production of "The Merchant of Venice," and was cast by David Belasco as the star of "Rosa Machree." Her last Broadway appearance was in the 1939 revival of the Clifford Odets play "Awake and Sing!"
