Obituary of Margaret Schiro Escousse
Margaret Schiro Escousse passed away on Sunday, September 18th, 2022, after a lengthy illness with multiple sclerosis and most recently a hard-fought battle with cancer. She was a native New Orleanian born on June 4th,1964 and a resident of Algiers, LA for many years. Margaret is survived by her husband, Brad Escousse; son Thomas Escousse (Robin), son Christopher Escousse, daughter Katie Escousse and her three grand dogs; her mother Patricia Schiro, brother Ernest Schiro Jr, brother Michael Schiro (Courtney), sister Susan Bruno (Michael), brother Paul Schiro and many nieces and nephews. She is preceded in death by her father Ernest Schiro MD and her sister Mary Schiro. After graduating from the Academy of the Sacred Heart in 1982, Margaret attended Louisiana State University and earned her college degree in elementary education from Our Lady of Holy Cross College. She valued her lifelong friendships with her classmates at Sacred Heart and was very proud when her daughter Katie followed in her footsteps and graduated from Sacred Heart. Margaret and Brad started dating early in their high school years and she always enjoyed watching all of Brad’s Jesuit and LSU baseball games. Margaret was very proud of her two sons, Thomas and Christopher, who both graduated from Ole Miss, and she loved going to football games and tailgating in The Grove. Margaret’s “happy place” was sitting on the beach at the family condo in Perdido Key, FL and walking to Flora Bama for live music and bushwhackers. Margaret was a true New Orleanian as she loved Mardi Gras and enjoyed riding on the float in parades in different carnival krewes. She made many lifelong friends over the years as the family moved to new places, and she valued all the friendships and love from so many people. Margaret was a fantastic wife, loving mother, wonderful daughter/sister, and she loved her extended family. She enjoyed traveling to Europe and was always excited visiting new countries, experiencing different cultures, and meeting new friends. In lieu of flowers, please make a memorial contribution to the Saint Stephen Catholic School on 1027 Napoleon Ave New Orleans LA 70115, National Multiple Sclerosis Society, or the Glioblastoma Cancer Society.
