March 9, 1926 - May 20, 2020
Rosalie Grace “Toesy” Malone passed away on Wednesday, May 20, 2020 at the age of 94. She was a native of New Orleans, LA and a resident of Metairie, LA. Beloved mother of Paul Stanton Abadie (Elaine) and Brian Anthony Abadie (Shawn). Loving grandmother of Yvette Abadie Box (Austin), Rachel Abadie Posner (Bret), Bradley Abadie, and Ross Abadie. Daughter of the late Thelma Wahl Malone and Maurian Malone. Also survived by 1 great grandchild. She was a child of the great depression from a Sicilian/German family. Rose had many friends, and often reached out to strangers which we never quite understood. She was complex, but kind. Following family vetting, she took in someone who was living under a bridge and gave them a free roof for many years. She was very independent, had a good heart, stubborn determination, a hard head, and was never afraid of work. As a devoted mother and spouse she worked most of her adult life to sustain her family. Like her father, she never called in sick. She was a natural born paint artist and had a need to be creative....always sewing, modifying, or making something. She was seen walking home with groceries in one hand, a “picked” lilly bulb in the other hand, and only stooped long enough in the front yard to plunge her thumb in the ground to stick the bulb in. By the next day there would be a garden where the thumb-hole was. If she had an interest she would self-teach herself how to excel at that interest. She loved to sing the “old” songs with the piano lady at Pat O’Briens as Rose was self-taught on the piano. At 87 years old she once related that two children had the nerve to pass up her bike with their bikes. She yelled, “You’re not going to beat me” and then out-pedaled them. Her thick, red gravy, seafood okra gumbo was never wanting for crabs or shrimp and her crawfish bisque was incomparable. She loved her cats, prayed to the Lord regularly, and invoked his love and mercy. Thanks to Mike and Marilyn; cousins, Rosemae and Rochelle; Ms. Flora, and others who supported and befriended her throughout the years. Thank you to all of the people who attended to and watched out for her since her 2019 admittance to St. Anthony’s Nursing Home. As a result of present circumstances the funeral and committal services are private, but our community of friends are important to us.
