Antoinette K-Doe passed away of a heart attack early Tuesday morning after finishing her Lundi Gras shift at the Mother-in-Law Lounge. Thankfully, we were able to present her with our Heartbeat Award in January and let her know how we felt about her.
Snooks Eaglin’s funeral plans have been made. On Friday, there will be a visitation at the Howlin’ Wolf from 9 a.m. to noon, then he will be buried at Providence Park Cemetery (8200 Airline Dr. in Metairie).
Update: 1:30 p.m. – We’ve since got more details on Eaglin’s funeral. The doors open at the Wolf at 9 am., and the service will be from 10 to 12 p.m. with music by Allen Toussaint, Irma Thomas and Deacon John. After that, there will be a second line with the Hot 8 and the Senior Division of the Young Olympia Brass Band, then a repast before the burial.
