Lynn Ganucheau Waits, 63, of New Orleans, LA slipped the surly bonds of earth, put out her hand and touched the face of God on July 12, 2017 ending an eight year battle with cancer. Lynn was born on April 24, 1954 to Gilbert F. Ganucheau, Sr. and the late Yvonne DeGruy Ganucheau. She is survived by her husband, Randolph J. Waits; her daughter, Bianca L. Waits, and her son, Elliott R. Waits. Lynn is also survived by her siblings: Yvette Cassara (Andrew), Cynthia Hill (Stephen), Gilbert Ganucheau, Jr. (Sheila), Marcelle Manship (Mark), Thomas Ganucheau (Lisa), and Richard Ganucheau (Jean Marie). She is survived by dozens of nieces and nephews and countless friends.

Saints are those who, while on earth, Christ manifests his holiness and continues the work of salvation. Lynn is a Saint. A devoted philanthropist for several causes near and dear to her heart, Lynn never said “no” to helping those less fortunate. A loving wife and proud mother, Lynn’s husband and children assumed the mantle of care and compassion by their selfless and sacrificial care for Lynn up to her last breath. The life of every party, Lynn will be forever missed by those who had the pleasure of knowing her. She will forever be in our minds and hearts until we all meet again in the loving embrace of our Heavenly Father.

Visitation will be from 10:00am to 11:00am on Tuesday, July 18, 2017 at Lake Lawn Metairie Funeral Home in New Orleans, LA followed by a Roman Catholic Mass beginning at 11:00am. The family has asked that in lieu of flowers a donation be made to Cancer Crusaders in Lynn’s name.
