There is a new star in the heavens. The strength and light that Sally brought to her family will now eternally brighten the night sky. Sally Schwarzenbach Duet left this world on Sept. 14, 2021 at the age of 79 in her family home surrounded by loved ones after a courageous battle with cancer. Sally was born in New Orleans, LA. She attended Ursuline Academy and remained a proud Skip attending annual reunions and luncheons with friends. Sally worked as a legal secretary until her retirement from the 24th Judicial District Courthouse in Jefferson Parish in 2007. Sally was a devoted wife, mother, and grandmother. She never met a stranger as she could make a new friend in the checkout line at Winn-Dixie. She was an avid bridge player, a lover of any type of game and collector of recipes. Sally touched countless lives with her warmth, kindness, and selflessness. She was a consummate volunteer serving her church and community as well as her children and grandchildren's schools. She was quite often known as the "hostess with the mostest." Sally is preceded in death by her parents Dr. Malcolm Paul Schwarzenbach Sr. and Agnes McCord Schwarzenbach; adoptive parents Thelma "Nan" Brown Ramos and Joseph "Bubby" Calise Ramos; in-laws Ferris John Duet Sr. and Frances Cartozzo Duet; her brother Malcolm Paul Schwarzenbach Jr.; and son-in-law John Price Abernathy. Sally is survived by her husband Deacon Ferris John Duet Jr. with whom she just recently celebrated 59 years of marriage. Mother to daughters Monique Duet Abernathy (John, deceased) and Nicole Duet Latiolais (Everett). Loving and devoted grandmother "Nana" to Peyton Abernathy Villarreal (Eduardo), Tessa Duet Abernathy, Cole Everett Latiolais, and Eli Elton Latiolais. Also survived by her step-mother Anna Clark Schwarzenbach, sister Sue Schwarzbach Neyrey and brother Kelly Hartman Schwarzenbach. There are not enough words to express our appreciation for the family and friends who have fought alongside us during her battle against cancer. Your love and steadfast presence kept us strong. The family also extends their gratitude to the doctors, nurses, and staff at the Hematology Oncology Clinic, the 6th floor of the Baton Rouge General–Bluebonnet and St. Joseph Hospice. Their caring, kindness, and love made the last few months possible and they will be forever in our hearts. Family and friends are invited to attend a funeral mass at St. Patrick Catholic Church, 12424 Brogdon Lane, Baton Rouge, LA 70816 at 11:00 a.m. on Saturday, Sept. 25, 2021. Visitation will begin at 10:00 a.m. and a Celebration of Life reception will be held at the church's Family Center following the mass.
