Phoebe Au - 11/26/1960- 3/2/2021

Phoebe Au passed away on March 2, 2021 at a care facility near her home in New Orleans, LA after a brief battle with advanced stage lung cancer. Phoebe spent her youth helping her parents with their kennel in Lorain County, Ohio and developed a love for animals she would carry throughout her life. Phoebe was fierce, loyal, proud, intelligent and independent. Phoebe was a staunch supporter and advocate for victims’ rights and spent her adult life dedicated to trying to help victims find justice. Phoebe was a hilarious, kind and compassionate person and despite the challenges of her own life, she always displayed support and understanding for others. Phoebe’s spirit is something that cannot be described in so few words it is truly something you had to experience to understand. I, as all of those who loved Phoebe are, am grateful to have gotten that honor. 

Phoebe was preceded in death by her father Roger Au in 2011 and her mother Carol Au in 2013. Phoebe is survived by her brother and sister and a large community of cousins, extended family and friends. 

Phoebe’s has no funeral service to be announced. If you would like to make an offer of remembrance please feel free to donate to The American Cancer Society, or find a reputable victim’s advocacy group, mental health support group, or animal sanctuary to donate to in honor of Phoebe’s memory.

We can only pray in her peace she has found the answers she spent a lifetime searching for.
“The woods are lovely, dark and deep,
  But I have promises to keep,
  And miles to go before I sleep,
  And miles to go before I sleep”
