Audry Breaux, a longtime resident of Seattle Housing Authority and Yesler Terrace, passed away March 7 at the age of 83.
Originally from Cajun country, New Orleans, the octogenarian loved cooking her native Louisiana Creole dishes, including deep fried catfish, cornbread, collard greens and Po’boy sandwiches.

Always the life of the party, Audry Breaux volunteered for 50 years at Neighborhood House. The former nurse loved watching the Seahawks and Mariners and was a resident of Yesler for half her life.

Breaux, affectionately known by many as ‘Nanny,’ was a three-time cancer survivor and sports enthusiast, and during the 70s and 80s was a season ticketholder for the Seattle SuperSonics.

She loved to dance the jitterbug and once worked as a certified mixologist (bartender).

After moving to Seattle in 1957, she was a nurse at Madigan Army Hospital, the VA Medical Center and Harborview.
Relatives and friends gathered March 24 at Garfield Community Center to celebrate her life.
