empress of the universe

Empress of the Universe Antoinette K-Doe called home
Posted by: Alison Fensterstock in In Memoriam

In the early hours of Mardi Gras Day, Antoinette K-Doe, widow of the legendary Ernie and proprietor of the Mother-in-Law Lounge, passed away. Last Mardi Gras Day, Mrs. K-Doe had entered the hospital for heart failure, but recovered and was quickly back behind the bar.

Mrs. K-Doe was a local legend and as proprietor of the Lounge and steward of K-Doe’s memory, an international icon. Details to follow as they become available. At this time, it’s not clear if the lounge will be open to revelers and mourners today.

the empress will have 2 services one at her church in treme, i'm thinking that must be st. augustine, and one at gallier hall on saturday. there will also be a viewing at mother in law's on friday from 2 til 7. snooks' service is being held today and i'm not sure where. antoinette will be resting with ernie and her mother, his mother-in-law. how fitting. there will be a huge jazz funeral on saturday and probably friday as well. i don't know if you've seen an authentic one but they have got to be the best way to be sent off that i could ever imagine. til next time
