Obituary for Margaret Alice De La Rossa (Khelokian)

Margaret Alice De La Rossa (Khelokian)

Age 85, passed away October 12, 2017 from complications related to Alzheimer’s disease.
Marge was born in Detroit on February 14, 1932 and is preceded in death by her parents, Ardashes and Agnes Khelokian, late brother Arsen (Arlene) Khelokian and late sister Mary Ann (late Ashod) Hovansian.

She is survived by her daughter, Kimberly De La Rossa and beloved grandson Carlin (Courtney) Hess, who lives in Tennessee.

Despite her illness, Marge never let her disease control her and demonstrated a quality and dignity of life that mirrored her lifelong resolve.

Marge recognized everyone, including each member of the staff at The Breckinridge in Lexington, Kentucky, who referred to her lovingly as “Hollywood.”

From a young age, Margaret was high spirited, high energy and high fashion! In 1961, while working for Ford Motor Company in Dearborn, she met and married Don. The automotive world became part of her life and she became devoted to entertaining and travelling. In 1985, she settled in La Jolla, California, where she volunteered for many organizations and enjoyed all that southern California has to offer.

While living in Michigan, she took great pride and demonstrated great commitment in her role as Vice President of the Oakland County Republican National Committee.

She will be missed.

Services will be held on Saturday, November 25th at 10 a.m. at St. Sarkis Armenian Apostolic Church 19300 Ford Road, Dearborn.

Interment Woodlawn Cemetery.

In lieu of flowers, the family encourages donations be made to the Alzheimer’s Association.
