Obituary for Joann Eisenstatt

Joann Eisenstatt, 91, of Jackson, MS, passed away peacefully, on August 29, 2020. Joann was born in 1929 in Chicago, IL. She was preceded in death by her husband of 56 years, Phillip Eisenstatt. Together they had three children, Kay (Philip Pollack), Larry (Liz), and Jerry (Lynn). She attended college at LSU where she was a drum majorette. Joann spent most of her adult life in New Orleans, LA, where she enjoyed a full life centered around family, faith, and friends. She sold Avon cosmetics, and loved going to the grocery and cooking. She was famous for her amazing coffee cake, brisket, Mandel bread, and strudel. She loved celebrating holidays, cheering on the Saints, and watching Mardi Gras parades. She always went home with her neck full of beads.
She was displaced during Hurricane Katrina, just months after her husband died, and moved to be closer to her family in Jackson, MS. She played bridge and mah jong, doted on her great grandchildren, and spent quiet moments enjoying the outdoors.
In addition to her three children and their spouses, Joann is survived by her sister, Kathy (Arthur) Judd of Denver, CO, seven grandchildren Greg (Robyn) and Scott (Jenny) Pollack, Tom (Rachel), Steven (Breanna), Jessica, Brian (Stephanie), and Michael Eisenstatt, and by 12 great grandchildren.
Joann will be buried in New Orleans at a private ceremony. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to Beth Israel Congregation in Jackson, or Shir Chadash in New Orleans.
