Esther & Victor Cohen
Leonard Cohen’s older sister, Esther, has been featured in several Cohencentric posts, but photos of her with her husband Victor are rare. The posting of this shot, thanks to Esther’s nephew, Jonathan Greenberg, affords an opportunity to provide some background for those fans who are unfamiliar with Esther.
Esther married Victor Cohen. Following a Cuban honeymoon, they traveled extensively, were regulars at plays, concerts, movies, and parties, and lived happily together, Esther did research for McGill and for Colliers in New York. She was unequivocally enthusiastic about life and beloved by everyone who met her. Esther died Sept 7, 2014, 19 years after Victor’s passing.
