Audrey Joy Schlosser Proctor passed away peacefully at her home on January 26, 2024 at the age 97. She was born in New Orleans on April 5, 1926 to Anthony and Mary Schlosser. She attended Ursuline Academy and Dominican College, then worked for Traveler’s Insurance Company prior to marrying Llewellyn Proctor in New Orleans on September 2, 1950. In 1956, they moved to the suburbs in Baton Rouge, where they raised four children. Audrey was devoted to her family, and she enjoyed many activities. She assisted her husband in his career in patent law by managing the business affairs for his private practice. She loved gardening and raised incredible orchids. She created beautiful needle work and made countless cross-stitch baby quilts and needlepoint items for family and friends. She enjoyed playing Pokeno with her friends and playing slot machines at a casino. Even when she could no longer leave her house, she was never idle. She spent her last years reading books, watching her favorite TV programs, Jeopardy and The Lawrence Welk Show, and playing slot machines on her iPad. Audrey is survived by her brother, Anthony Schlosser, Jr.; two sons, John Michael Proctor (wife, Nancy) and Donald J Proctor (wife, Gay); daughter, Antoinette Seal; eight grandchildren; and 13 great-grandchildren. She was preceded in death by her parents; her sister, Marion LeBon; her husband of 64 years, Llewellyn A Proctor, Sr.; son, Dr. Llewellyn Allen Proctor, Jr. (Mary) ; son-in-law, Stephen Seal; and granddaughter, Kelly Baechle. A Mass of Christian Burial will be held at St. Thomas More Catholic Church on Tuesday, January 30 at 11 a.m. Visitation will start one hour before Mass at 10:00 a.m. Interment will follow at Resthaven Gardens of Memory on Jefferson Hwy. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to St. Thomas More Catholic Church or Catholic High School, Baton Rouge. Audrey will be missed every day. She will be remembered as a loving and generous mother, grandmother, great-grandmother, sister and friend. Our family wants to thank the many caretakers that helped our mother, especially April Jenkins, Deborah Burton, and the staff of Clarity Hospice.
