Tribute To Marianne


Today’s Leonard Cohen Facebook Page is dedicated as a memorial to Marianne Ihlen. Those who wish to submit their thoughts, memories, poems, etc about Marianne – even if they have done so already at another site – are invited make those contributions here. We hope to collect these sentiments in one place in Marianne’s memory.

    I first met Marianne in 1966 when I was stationed in Athens, then again on Hydra, she was the type of person that immediately put you at ease. Fun to be around and very, very intelligent. It was via Marianne that I met Leonard Cohen at one of my parties.
    I left Greece in the 70s and did not talk with her until 2002. I was surprised and pleased that she remember me as we talked about Greece and the joy there.
    I would like to convey my condolences to Leonard, her myriad of friends and those who will think of her every time they hear “So Long Marianne”.
