Lorraine LaCour Adams Obituary

Lorraine LaCour Adams was born on August 12, 1946, in Natchez, Mississippi and lived a full life until her Father quietly called her home on Sunday April 28, 2024, in Austin, Texas.


Lorraine, affectionately referred to as “Sweetie”, was raised on Locust Ridge Plantation in St. Joseph, LA. She moved away to graduate college and start her career as a medical technologist until she returned to Locust Ridge to raise her own family. She lived happily in the country until she moved to Leander, Texas, just outside of Austin in 2009 to be closer to her children and grandchildren. Moving to the city was a big change, but in true “Granny” fashion, she quickly adapted and found joy in everything from getting her groceries delivered, to attending concerts and shows, to making new friends and trying every seafood restaurant within a 30 mile radius! One of her favorite things about living in Austin was getting to see all the bluebonnets and amazing wildflowers that bloom in spring and finding magnolias to sniff, because it reminded her of home. She filled most of her days snuggling her mini Yorkie, Punkin, and looked forward to days that involved lunch dates. Her reason for living was to be involved in the lives of her children and grandchildren. Lorraine was fortunate enough to be a part of loads of birthday parties, holiday gatherings, sporting events, school music and theater productions, graduations and countless other events and celebrations. She had a full heart and a kind spirit that echoed throughout our family. She never met a stranger, and her positivity was infectious. Her love of life and family will be missed immensely but will live on in the hearts of all those she touched. She was our tiny treasure.


Those left behind to cherish Lorraine’s memories are her daughter, Dawn LaCour Fosbury (husband Justin) of Leander, Texas and their children: Noelle, Annabelle, and Jaxon. Her son, Adam Roy Crow (wife Cristina) of Wimberley, Texas and their children: Samuel, Elliott and Ari. And her sister, Florence Dianne Parker (husband John) of Madison, Mississippi and their son Jason Marshall Parker and wife Jane of Damascus, OR. Lorraine was preceded in death by her parents, Magruder Drake Adams, Jr. and Lorraine Gale Adams.


A mass in honor of Lorraine will be hosted by Father Taylor Reynolds and led by Father Louis Sklar at St. Joseph Catholic church on Thursday May 16th. Visitation will begin at 10:30AM, followed by a Rosary at 11:30 and mass at noon. Immediately following the mass, a small graveside service will be held at Locust Ridge Plantation where Lorraine will be laid to rest with her parents.


At Lorraine’s request, please consider making a donation in lieu of flowers to Dell Children’s Hospital in Austin, Texas.
