Unconditional love is desired more than riches by the wise. Its fortunate recipients find a wellspring of inspiration, nurturing and well being. It is the piece de resistance for any life, and it is the heartfelt gift Joan Breaux gave to family and friends. An independent woman known for her generosity, love of family, eternal optimism, and as the ultimate Saints fan, Joan passed away in her home Monday, August 5, 2019 with her family by her side. She was 83. Joan saw beauty and goodness in all people and had the gift of finding common ground with everyone she met. She was an artist, bibliophile, political junkie, lover of history, and to many people known as the number one New Orleans Saints fan. To her family she was first and foremost a devoted wife and mother. She leaves to cherish her memory Charles Whaley Breaux, Jr., husband of 66 years, children Robert Breaux (Kim), Deborah Hollingsworth (Sam), Susan Campbell (Frank), JoAnn Loupe (Scott), Kenneth Breaux (Audrey), as well as a host of grandchildren, great-grandchildren, cousins, and multitudes of friends whose lives she indelibly touched. She is predeceased by son, Charles Breaux, and grandson, John Loupe. Joan loved her family, her hometown, and the Saints passionately. Daughter of the late Walter and Stella Guedry Sicard of New Orleans, she was born with a joie de vivre that skipped through her veins and reached for the sky. She fell in love with the city’s charms and culture at an early age, went to mass and ate beignets in the French Quarter, attended Holy Cross football games with her cousin Charlotte and political rallies with her activist mother, and studied at the McCrady School of Art on Bourbon Street. She graduated from Holy Angels Academy in 1952 and received a scholarship to Newcomb. Joan found the perfect partner for her life’s passions when she married Charlie in 1953. She was a long time parishioner of the St. Louis Cathedral, the Touchdown Club of New Orleans, and the Saints Booster Club. Joan doted on her children and never tired of carting them to parades, parties, sleep overs, and of course, football games. She zealously hand made and sewed all her children’s costumes, cheerleading & dance team attire, making sure all outfits were perfect. As one by one left home, her energy and attentions transferred to her beloved NFL Franchise, the New Orleans Saints. No separation anxiety for her! There was no more a passionate Saints fan, as she never missed a home game in 50 years, from 1967-2017. She would arrive at the stadium 2 hours before kickoff and stay until the NOPD was ready for lights out. The Dome was much more than a second home for Joan; it was holy ground. She was chosen the #1 Saints fan on the team’s 50th Anniversary by the Times Picayune, which was an honor well deserved. Her devotion to the Saints was legendary, and she lovingly became known as the Mother of All Saints fans. The Breaux family will receive guests on Thursday, August 15, 2019 from 10:00 a.m. until 1:00 p.m. in the Lake Lawn Metairie Funeral Home parlor, 5100 Pontchartrain Blvd., New Orleans. A private burial will follow in All Saints Mausoleum, St. Joan of Arc Corridor. The family wishes to thank Notre Dame Hospice, and particularly Deborah Smith, Joan’s angel, for the genuine bond forged, love and devoted care given. In lieu of flowers, the Breaux family wishes that family and friends would consider making a monetary donation to the The Pulmonary Fibrosis Foundation at pulmonaryfibrosis.org.

Dear Mr. Charlie Breaux and Family:
It is with a sad heart to hear about Joan passing. What a wonderful and beautiful person. Unfortunately I cannot make the service. I have to attend rehab due to radiation from the cancer. My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family. She will be missed especially her friendly smile at TDCONO banquets.

Ms Joan was a great person I will never forget her, the sweetest person in the world. Her knowledge of her Saints I had the great pleasure of traveling with her to many out of town games we had great times. I loved to hear people ask her what was that Saints player name, and yes she always knew their names. She was the #1 Saints fan! She was loved by many and will be missed by many. Ms Joan you are in a better place and just help our Saints do great this year. Love you Ms Joan miss you!! GO SAINTS!!!

I remember Ms Joan when I was growing up. Going to football games, Pontchatrain Beach, and a couple of Mardi Gras parades. Best of all was going to the airport on a Sunday evening to meet the Saints after a game. I’m the Saints fan that I am because of Ms Joan and my mom. She is also the reason I fell in love with Mustangs I loved her car. All the precious memories. I’m so thankful I was able to see you last season at a game. Rest In Peace Ms Joan. I know you’ll be watching the games from heaven.

My sweet and beloved cousin Joan, she was the big sister I never had. She was my mentor, my Pied Piper, my Peter Pan and friend. She was my guide throughout my childhood. she entertained me in a world of a childhood fantasy of new adventures every day. She was a great artist and took the time to teach me the art of drawing. She took me to all the high school football games that Holy Cross High played in at City Park. She took me swimming and gave neighborhood stage shows "which I was always in" she was dramatic and made me laugh. So much more about Joan to remember, she may be gone, but her spirit will forever live in my heart. I Love you Joan.
