Isabelle DeKoven
Jan. 22, 1939-Jan. 5, 2018
Pleasanton, California

Isabelle DeKoven, a Pleasanton resident for 15 years, 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 two sons, John (and his spouse, Julie) and James (and his spouse, Jill); sister Jenny Block; brother Victor Batjaj; and “grand-dog” Tiger.
