Adelle Gautier TRIBUTE

by DALE RICARDO SHIELDS

“Dale, I am Tiffany Chase, Adella’s daughter. I wanted to share with you our family’s gratitude for this beautiful video. Fly me to the moon is one of my favorite songs and I will cherish it even more now. I have watched and shared this video over and over again to those within and outside of our family. Everyone loves it! Thank you for making a difficult time brighter. My mom bought so much love to so many and we are grateful to be the recipient of her kindness. Thank you, again.  – Tiffany

Adella and (daughter) Amber at the recent benefit production NOLA Voice Theatre presented. She performed onstage in it in the 2nd act, but sadly, Shayne couldn’t stay for it… though he did manage to meet and be captivated by her before the 1st act and during intermission. These shots are the last shots of Adelle at a show in public. – PHOTO:  Shayne McClain of WHIZ New Orleans Magazine.)

Dear Dale (Iforcolor), You are my cultural pusher man.  When do you sleep, Culture man? I simply adore and so appreciate the wealth and depth of the site’s information. Thanks for this important site. Much love, joy, peace, and prosperity to you and Iforcolor.” –  Adelle

Adelle credited the Dillard Players’ Guild for laying the foundation for her achievements, according to a post on the Dillard University National Alumni Association website.

Adella Gautier, a star of the New Orleans theater scene, died of complications of cancer at Ochsner Health Center on Tuesday. She was 73.

“In 2015 Gautier learned that she had a form of cancer similar to leukemia that eventually took her life. Her last appearance was in June at the NOLA Voice Theatre, in “Michael Martin: A Life in Theater,” in which she reprised passages from some of her favorite past roles.

Adella Gautier will live on in episodes of the television shows “Law and Order,” “Treme” and “Queen Sugar,” and the film “Runaway Jury” and others. “We’re feeling a great loss,” said daughter Amber, “but, man, did she live.”

She is survived by daughters Amber Zu-Johnson and Louisiana 4th Circuit Court of Appeal judge Tiffany Gautier Chase.”

 

Fortunate to have my girls.

They are adults who make this Mama proud.
Both are excelling in their careers;
Amber, the historian, and education administrator, and Tiffany, the lawyer, and circuit court judge.”

 

Amber Easter Gautier Zu-Bolton,

Tiffany Gautier Chase and

Mama, Adella 

 

 

I was heartbroken to learn of the passing of Adella Gautier — known to those that loved her as “Adella Adella the Storyteller”. She shared her gifts as a storyteller with the children of New Orleans for over five decades, and we mourn her loss deeply. Her public service to the people of our City lives on in the service of her daughters, Judge Tiffany Chase, and Amber Zu-Johnson. May she rest in God’s perfect peace. – Mayor LaToya Cantrell

I’ve known and worked with the great Adelle Gautier since I was literally a kid starting out in theater. Adella Adella Storyteller shared ancestry and pride with everyone, and now her stories are carried within all of us. Soar high Mama Adella, and thank you for the love. – Edward R. Cox

Now she belongs to the ages.

The ancestral village has welcomed her.
