Mrs Joann was a true LADY. I have met few ladies that I respect/respected more than she. There isn't enough space to say all I have in my heart, but i can tell you this: "She will live forever in my heart and my memories!" Thank you for being a caring and loving friend! Princesse Stephaney

JoAnn followed in the footsteps of
our Aunt Ann, and went into the field of nursing. She was a dedicated caregiver, and was always there for her patients, and her family. As her cousin, she was always supportive of my Mom and Dad, sisters and our respective families during our time of need. Our deepest condolences to William and family during this time of loss.

My Mom (Alice Breaux) worked with Ms. Auter @ BR General in the 70's. I remember her well myself. She was a great nurse and my mom always enjoyed working with her. RIP Ms Auter!
