Jane CELLER Obituary
CELLER (Llaurensou) Jane "Janou" Jane "Janou" Llaurensou Celler passed away peacefully at home on Thursday, September 7, 2017. Born in Maisons-Laffitte, France, near Paris, in 1926, Janou met her loving and devoted husband, Morton, during his service for the United States in World War II, while Morton was stationed in Paris. They fell deeply in love and were together for over 65 years. As a professor at Emory for decades, she enthusiastically imparted her passion for French history, art, and culture on thousands of Emory students. Janou never lost her love for France, typically catching up on French news by reading the newspaper Le Figaro and other French periodicals. Morton and Janou travelled the world together immersing themselves in various traditions and cultures. Janou never turned down an opportunity to attend concerts at Spivey Hall or the Atlanta Symphony. She used her quick wit to discuss politics, and had a smile that warmed the entire room. She especially enjoyed French white Burgundy and red Bordeaux wines, as well as fine food such a foie gras, duck, and tripe. Her hospitality was unmatched, often hosting five-course meals, complete with fine wines, sweetbreads, cheeses, and French fine food for friends, former students, and godchildren.
