On Dec. 10, Esther K. Cohen of Boulder, Colo., formerly of Bethesda. Beloved wife of the late Victor Cohen, she leaves behind to mourn her loss her devoted daughter Sharon (Steve Heit) and son Jerrold (Frieda); loving grandchildren Lora (Tate MacDowell), Chloe, and great-grandchild Wilson; and her sister Betty and brother Simon. She was preceded in death by her sisters Annie and Mina, and her grandson Alex. Born in France, she survived the Holocaust, but that tragedy could not dampen her great joie de vivre, love of family, beautiful French accent, and courageous and generous heart. She leaves behind a multitude of nieces, nephews, and friends. Funeral services were held Dec. 13 at Mt. Lebanon Cemetery in Adelphi. Memorial contributions may be made to Planned Parenthood or to a charity of your choice.
