Phyllis Maxey Autin entered eternal rest on January 6, 2022 in Baton Rouge, LA at the age of 74. She was a native of New Orleans and graduated from Francis T. Nicholls High School. She lived most of her adult life in Mandeville. She is survived by her sister, Linda Ferguson (Audie); her daughters Beth Autin (Chris Catterton) of San Diego, CA; Alison Neisler (Michael) of Prairieville, LA; Melanie Autin of Bowling Green, KY; and her son Matthew Autin (Roxanne) of Baton Rouge, LA. She was the beloved Grammy to Henry and Sara Neisler, who she moved to Prairieville to be near. Phyllis was preceded in death by her husband, Albert P. Autin, Jr. She always enjoyed spending time with her family and friends and making them laugh. She loved the time she spent and the people she met working at Tuesday Morning and Barnes & Noble. Like all native New Orleanians, she enthusiastically appreciated the bounty of our local waters and gardens. Her loved ones will forever miss her New Orleans accent, terrible singing, April Fool's jokes, and creative use of technology. In lieu of flowers, the family requests donations be made to a local animal shelter, humane society, or animal rescue in her memory. Arrangements by Ourso Funeral Home of Gonzales, La.

I was saddened to read of your mother's death, Matt, Beth, and Allison. She was dear to me in the many ways she helped with the art program at Mandeville Middle School. I think of her and you three kids often and know that she is smiling down on you and always will.

Ms. Phyllis was such a wonderful person. I have so many memories of laughing with her in your childhood home. I will forever associate her with Popeye´s chicken on Christmas Eve. She was always ready to smile and have fun. She will be missed dearly.

I met Phyllis working at B&N 20 years ago and she quickly became my best friend! Phyllis was a blessing in my life, so kind and so very giving. And funny, Phyllis always made me laugh! She loved her family and always shared milestones about her beautiful grandchildren. I have so many wonderful memories; game night, lunches, talks on the phone, swimming, late night visits, & more. Phyllis was so happy to move closer to her grandchildren but so dearly missed by me. Phyllis and I were actually in the processes of arranging to visit this year. I am so sad I did not go sooner. Through Phyllis, I got to know her children, who I admire. My heart and prayers are with you. I know Phyllis is with Al and smiling down on us all. I love you Phyllis and I know we will meet again.

Phyllis was a true friend to me and my wife Julie. She was always smiling when we visited her at her home in Mandeville. I had the opportunity to spend time with her and Al and enjoyed every minute with them both. They will forever be in our thoughts and I will never forget the time we had with them. Phyllis brought me a lot of happy memories I had with my grandmother while watching her spend time with her grandchildren. She loved them more than anything in the world. You could see the twinkle in her eyes when she spoke of them. Phyllis will be missed more than she could have ever imagined, because she shared a contagious feeling of love and happiness not many get to experience from one person to another. I love you Phyllis and will miss you dearly.
