Robertson McKee & Octavia Crichton - New Jersey

Robertson McKee born 1882 Fife Scotland & Octavia Crichton born 1881 Fife Scotland
went to New Jersey and on 1940 census they are at  Fort Lee Borough, Bergen, New Jersey with 4 of their 5 children.
I have searched and cannot find their deaths in New Jersey. maybe someone can help me with this.

Robertson was alive as of 1942, as his WWII draft registration card is here:  https://www.familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:X5GN-L2S

1956, 1958 & 1960 Ridgewood, New Jersey city directories list Octavia McKee, widow of Robertson.

Unfortunately, there is nothing comprehensive online for New Jersey deaths in that time frame.

Someone else may have access to newspapers or other sources that I don't have, so it may be possible for something to be found.
