In memory of
Lucille Virginia Baudouin Brady
Lucille Virginia Baudouin Brady, November 14, 1959 – May 16, 2020. "I thank God for you" II Timothy 1:3. After a courageous battle with metastatic breast cancer and while surrounded by family and friends and holding her husband's hand, Lucille Virginia Baudouin Brady went to Heaven on the evening of Saturday, May 16, 2020. She carried herself with dignity and grace all the way through this trial and was an inspiration to all. Born in New Orleans in 1959, she was a quiet Southern beauty with a deep well of strength from her belief in God and family values. She attended St Mary's Dominican High School in New Orleans and graduated in 1977. While attending Dominican, she met Connie Padgett (Volny), who would become her life-long best friend. After attending Louisiana State University, she joined the workforce as a legal secretary at the Milling-Benson law firm. It was there she met the luckiest guy in the world, Jason Brady. They were married in 1991 and were richly blessed with their daughter, Aimee Marie, in 1996. In 1997, she and Jason formed A-B Computer Solutions, Inc. (named after, guess who, Aimee Brady). Under her wise financial direction, A-B, a technology services company, became a successful women-owned small business and won numerous awards from NASA, the Department of Defense and the Small Business Administration. A-B, with Ken Antonucci's careful guidance, continues to thrive to this day. As much as she cared about her business, nothing was more important to her than her love for her family. Lucille had a passion for LSU and LSU football mainly because it was a great reason to see her family and friends. She loved cooking meals and being with the ones she loved. Thanksgiving and Christmas were the best times for her because we can all be "together" and she enjoyed the times that we hosted those family celebrations in our home. She also dearly loved the Mardi Gras season, because that meant more family time. She made heartfelt friends through this experience, none closer than Kelly McDermott, the best nurse on the planet. She was excited to join the Krewe of Cleopatra and ride with Connie and Kelly, and later, with Aimee. She always prayed that her family would attend church together and God answered that prayer when Aimee led the family to Church of the King in Mandeville. She loved Pastor Steve Robinson's messages and she was grateful for Pastor Doug Armand's mentoring of Jason and the Christian leadership her family received there. Lucille leaves behind her husband Jason that will miss her with all of his heart, her beautiful and bright daughter Aimee Marie, her son-in-law Brett, who, in her eyes, hung the moon, and her special pup Abigail, her chemo-cold cap buddy. Her brothers Bryan Baudouin, Sr. and his wife Bonnie who was truly like a sister to her, her brother William Baudouin, Sr. and his wife Debbie, her brother Waldo Baudouin and his wife Lorrie. She loved her godchild, Supermom Robyn Baudouin Lorando, and her husband, the handsome Josh and their precious children, Luke and Amelia. She was proud of her niece Michelle Osborne and her son Matthew. She was excited for her niece Shannon's successful career and upcoming wedding. Her nephew Bryan, Jr. has taken charge of the finances of her business and he is thriving in the responsibility. She loved of all her nieces and nephews and was so happy to see them become successful young adults; William Baudouin, Jr., Drew and Rachael Brady, Alex Baudouin and other cousins and extended family. The family is very grateful to the wonderful care we have received from Dr. Jack Saux, his first mates, Nacole, Jenna, and Sydney and everyone at Mary Bird Perkins in Covington. The compassionate nurses at Apex Home Health and Heritage Hospice: Julie, Stephanie, and Margret are such angels from God. Maya Angelou once said, "I've learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel." I think that describes the heart of Lucille. She was the ultimate hostess, an attentive conversationalist and a kind and caring friend. She was often quiet so maybe you don't remember what she said or did, but you remember that in her presence the feeling was comfortable and enjoyable and you knew that you were always welcome to come again. Services will be private. In lieu of flowers, the family would like to ask for donations to be made to: https://cagno.org/wp/ or https://www.compassionthatcompels.org/. Honorary pallbearers will be Brett Chilton, Bryan Baudouin, Jr, William Baudouin, Jr, Josh Lorando, Andrew (Drew) Brady and Ken Antonucci. Arrangements entrusted to Serenity Funeral Home, Covington, LA. Condolences and tributes can be posted at www.serenitycovington.com.
