RIP Antoinette K-Doe

Here she is with her Emperor, Ernie K-Doe.  She died on Februrary 24th, 2009. She was married to R&B singer Ernie, who had a 1961 hit with “Mother-in-Law“, and opened the Mother-in-Law Lounge in their living room in New Orleans, which Antoinette continued to run after his death, keeping the juke box going and the tv on for the life-size dummy of Ernie to watch.  They were totally in love.
