Isabelle DeKoven Obituary
January 22, 1939 - January 5, 2018 Isabelle DeKoven passed away on January 5th, 2018. Born in Paris, France, on January 22nd, 1939, she fled with her mother to Montpellier in the south of France to escape the Nazis. Isabelle moved to Los Angeles in 1962, and in 1963 married Michael DeKoven. Among her passions: Mozart, Beethoven, The Beatles, films, reading novels and newspapers, chocolate, and Filet-O-Fish sandwiches from McDonald's. She captivated friends and strangers with her zany sense of humor, strong political opinions, compassion, and lovely French accent. Isabelle fought for the underdog and disadvantaged, and encouraged individuality and the unconventional in every aspect of her life. Without question, Isabelle was the ultimate non-conformist. Michael DeKoven passed away in 1996. Isabelle is survived by sons John and James, sister Jenny Block, brother Victor Batjaj, and "grand-dog" Tiger. Services take place on January 14th, 12:30pm at Mount Sinai Memorial Park in Los Angeles. In lieu of flowers, please donate to bigdawgsrescue.org.
